We cannot wait to see you all again!

 

DASL (Student Information) Update

Your school building DASL Report Cards may look a little different this end of school year! It’s never too early to run sample report cards to make sure you do not need changes or assistance to accommodate this different kind of end of year. Items to think about:

  • Is your Marking Key correct? Did you add marks like P-Pass, I-Incomplete, etc.
  • Are you giving teachers different comment options? Example: Student earned P-Pass for participating in online instruction.
  • Did you eliminate exams? Do not pull Exam from left to right in Reporting Term For Which To Show Marks
  • Are you still calculating a 4th Quarter GPA? Does it calculate correctly?
  • Are you still printing and mailing report cards, or are you posting them to ParentAccess for the first time?

If you run samples now and have questions, please contact studenthelp[at]neonet[dot]org as soon as possible.

 

EMIS Update:
Data Appeal Windows closing Friday, May 29, 2020

  • FY20 Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) Appeal
  • FY20 Fall 3rd grade ELA & Reading Appeal
  • FY20 Summer & Fall End of Course Assessment (EOC) Appeal
  • FY20 CTE March (D) Follow-up Appeals

Districts will NOT be able to add students to their 2020 March list or update CTE program

If a district has any concerns, they should file an appeal. Performance Measures files will be coming out based on March data. A fair amount of data will be on the CTE report card (which is lagged one year) this year compared to the regular Local Report Card.  Deadline to submit corrected data in EMIS for approved appeals is June 12 at 11:59pm.
