DASL (Student Information) Update

We know it was a crazy return to school year and some of you are just starting to take a breath. This month we wanted to remind you of some important back to school tasks that are often overlooked in DASL:

  • FEES! At your building do you have BOTH boxes checked for Uses Fees and Has Fees Assigned? These check boxes are located at Management-School Administration-Student Information Options. They are crucial for the software to automatically assign fees to new registrants.
  • LUNCHES! Now that scheduling season is winding down it might be a good idea to run the report Students Without Lunch. It is located at Local-Analytics Hub- Scheduling folder. For attendance and truancy, tracking every student who takes a lunch needs a lunch on their schedule.
  • FAMILY GROUPS! Do you use the youngest family member as the designated courier for the family group? Remember at Management » District Administration » Family Groups Wizard there is a feature to re-assign courier. This will help get your newly registered students in the family to be the new courier. You can also check to see if any students are missing a family group and use the Add Students to existing group feature


Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year!

With many school districts in a blended learning or fully remote environment, the online RIMP process in DataMap is ideal for sharing and maintaining student intervention data.  The RIMP process in DataMap is an easy process which allows all teachers and administrators who share students to view and update RIMP interventions for their students.  The RIMP process has many added benefits including an easy to identify students who qualify for not-on-track as well as on-track, ability to record multiple intervention codes per student, supported progress monitoring, electronic signatures plus the added feature to directly import from DataMap to StudentInformation student RIMP diagnostic data for EMIS reporting.  For more information and training please contact studenthelp[at]neonet[dot]org

New exciting features for the start of the 2020-2021 school year:

  • Student Roadmap has the added feature of a graph displaying the student’s days absent and absence hours.
  • Multiple Measures has the option to display the percentage of students who received a performance level score of proficient or higher for the selected state assessments on the percent proficient graph.
  • Notifications are now available to notify staff when student assessment data has been added in DataMap.

The first  DataMap Roundtable Meeting for the 2020-2021 school year is scheduled for Wednesday, September 23rd at 1:00 pm.  The DataMap Roundtable will be held via WebEx, the connection details are as follows:

EMIS Update:

PE Benchmark Evaluations and Assessments for the 2020-2021 School Year

 Q. Are physical education assessments required to be completed for the 2020-2021 school year? 

A. Yes. Physical education assessments are governed locally. Therefore, school districts should determine how physical education assessments will be managed for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Q. Are physical education benchmark evaluations required to be reported to Educational Management Information System (EMIS) for the 2020-2021 school year? 

A. Yes. Physical education benchmark evaluations, school and district data still should be submitted to EMIS for the 2020-2021 school year. Physical education data is a report-only item on the Ohio School Report Cards and does not factor into report card ratings. Submitting all available data is required. Districts should refer to the EMIS manual for more information on reporting requirements. Districts may include any partially evaluated or non-evaluated students in the “evaluation not conducted at this grade band for the building” field rather than including them in the limited, proficient or advanced count. For example, if a student was not evaluated on all of the standards during the 2020-2021 school year, that student would not be included in the limited, proficient or advanced count and rather included in the “evaluation not conducted at this grade band for the building.” A district may also decide to create a tracking mechanism (spreadsheet) of all students listed in the “evaluation not conducted” category for records purposes. 

This is the same process that was in place when schools were ordered to close in March of 2020.


FY21 Data Processing Calendar has been updated to include the following new collections:

  • Current Graduation Credit Progress Collection (FY21) (2021SGRCR)
  • Student Course Grade Collection (FY21) (2021LCGRD)


We learned at OEDSA that ODE plans to release an ‘Early Warning System’ to help districts track students who are at risk of not graduating so that districts can get these students back on track and allow time for early intervention.  Commonly used indicators of these students are attendance, course performance, GPA and behavioral performance.  We will keep you posted as this new system rolls out.
