DASL Update
If your school district is changing the last day of school to end later than originally planned please make your building calendar changes at Management-School Administration-School Building Administration-Calendar Dates Wizard. For complete steps view page 23 of the Calendar Step by Step Checklist.
For reporting Blizzard Bag days: If a district had updated their calendar to a snow day (or calamity day), but then determined it would be a blizzard bag day, users should go back on the calendar and mark that day as a regular attending day (as though there were no snow day). Then any students that did not complete the blizzard bag should be marked as absent for that date. On the DN record the day would be counted as a Calamity Day and a Calamity Day Made Up. If you have any questions, please contact student services at studentservices[at]neonet[dot]org

EMIS Update
ODE has reopened Report period FY13D with an updated manifest (version 2) that allows the reporting of CTE Student Assessments (GY) for Local Education Agencies that failed to report those assessments during the 12N reporting period. The FY14D version 2 manifest has also been updated to include CTE Industry Assessment GY records.

Reporting of CTE Technical Assessments (GY) Now Allowed in March (D) Period
In the past, only CTE Industry Assessments (GU assessment type) have been reported in the March (D) reporting
period. Effective immediately, CTE Technical Assessments (GY assessment type) can also be reported for students who are included in the GV record extract for March. This represents a final opportunity to add any missing GY assessments to the data set that will be used on future CTPD report cards.

Any GY assessments previously reported in a yearend reporting period do not have to be resubmitted in March, as the March records for both GU and GY are combined with records of the same type from the prior yearend during perform report and CTPD report card processing. It is also acceptable, though not required, to re-report scores in March that were previously reported in yearend.

ProgressBook GradeBook Update
If you needed to extend your school year, there are a few things to verify in GradeBook.

  • Reporting Period Dates – Admin home page, Grading Setup, Reporting Periods. Verify the Term End Date is correct so
    the assignments are included in the averaging of the report card mark for the reporting period.

  • Report Card Entry Start Date, Entry End Date – Click EDIT to the right of the reporting period. Verify the Entry Start
    Date and Entry End dates are correct.

    • Just Reminder – Attendance on Elementary Report Cards updates the night AFTER the bucket closes.

  • Calendar Days – Admin Home Page, Annual Setup, School Calendars, open the calendars and verify the last day of school is YELLOW indicating a Full Day. If it is not, click on the Month and the NUMBER of the Date that needs to be set to a Full Day.
