DASL Update
If you are a district that uses Webxam you can start submitting files to NEOnet of students who need to test. As a reminder the district is responsible for generating the file, emailing the file to NEOnet, and then NEOnet will upload the file to Webxam. To create your extract file in DASL go to the Management » Import/Export » WebXam Export breadcrumb trail. You can use the Filter Selection feature which looks at the students CTE Program of Concentration filed in on the students FN-Attributes tab or the Ad-Hoc Selection feature.

ProgressBook GradeBook Update
Here are a couple of reminders for your teachers setting up their gradebook for the upcoming school year.
On the Teachers Home Page, have teachers verify that their email is up to date. Under Administration, click on “Update email Address”, verify or enter correct email then click UPDATE.
Hide Students in Class Roster Use the Hide option to prevent students who are no longer in a class from appearing in the class roster. You cannot delete a student from the class roster if the student has assignments, report card grades, period attendance, or comments in your grade book. Once you have hidden a student from the class roster, the name will no longer appear on attendance, assignment, or other screens for that class.

  1. On the Class Dashboard, click the Update Roster link below the list of Students.
  2. On the Class Roster screen, click the check box in the Hide column next to a student.
  3. Click Save. At any time, you can return to the Class Roster screen and deselect the Hide option next to a student to display that student on the roster again.
