DASL Update
It is always a good idea before the end of the first reporting period to verify your school buildings GPA Sets and Honor Roll’s. GPA Set Maintenance is located at Management » School Administration » Course History Administration » GPA Sets. Check that the mark types, reporting terms, calculations, and grade levels are correct. It is also a good idea to refresh your GPA Sets (the green arrows icon) and then verify the GPA is calculating correctly by going to SIS » Student » Course History » GPA History

Honor Roll Maintenance is located at Management » School Administration » Marks Administration Menu » Honor Rolls . Check that the minimum gpa, gpa set, missing marks, and message are all correct
