0End of Year Procedures for Schools Grades Pre K - 8
1Session ObjectivesAt the end of this session network Data/Application Support liaisons will:Understand what the purpose of the end of year process isExplain what each EOY screen is for and how to correctly enter information into themHave a sense of when the EOY process will take placeKnow where to look or who to ask for additional support regarding EOY procedures
2CFN Expectations After Today Networks will turn key this training to their schools.Networks should be prepared to support schools with all End of Year procedures questions and concerns.Schools should be advised to call their CFN for support.Any question or concern that cannot be addressed at the network level should be escalated to the cluster data/IT point.
3Using the ATS WikiThe ATS Wiki, along with the other DOE Wiki spaces, contains updated information on many ATS functions. When changes are made to ATS functions or when new functions are added, documenting information and screenshots are shared via the ATS Wiki.Always refer to the ATS Wiki for the most up-to-date information on ATS functions.DOE Wiki Link –Log in using your DOE user ID and DOE password.TIP – DOE staff can retrieve their DOE user ID and create a new password using the Password Recovery and Account Confirmation Tool.
4Using the ATS Wiki Searching the DOE Wiki Finding information on the DOE Wiki is easy. Like using Google to navigate the Internet, you can use search to access information the DOE wiki.From the main DOE wiki Dashboard locate the Search box in the top right corner of the page.The search box will always belocated here, next to your name.Click in the Search box and enter the ATS function you are looking for.As you type suggested Wiki pages will appear.Click on the name of the desired function from the drop down.
6End of Year DataSimilar to the work done by financial institutions at the end of a fiscal year, schools must close-out current school year data and prepare for the new school year during the months of April, May, and June.By the last day of school every student should be given a future location in ATS.New grade level and official class for each student being grade promoted within a school.Example: 3rd grade student moving to the 4th grade.New school (DBN) for students in the terminating grade.Example: 5th grader moving to Middle School and 8th grader moving to High School.
7Monitoring End of Year Data Several ATS functions and reports can be used to monitor end of year data and the progress a school is making towards completing end of year tasks.The STAT screen displays END OF YEAR statistics at a glance.PROFILE New York City Public Schools :08:54STAT Opening School Status ( As Of ) (STAT ATSUSER==>P.S. 000 EARLY CHILDHOOD SCHOOL PHONE: (718)FAX: (718)PRIN:ACTIVE STUDENTS (A): PREVIOUS UNSCANNED ROSTERS (RNOC):PEND DISCHARGE (WARN): STUDENTS MISSING ATTENDANCE (RRAI):FUTURE ADMITS (R): ADDRESS ERRORS (RADR):NEW ADDRESS (CSAC): EXAM ERRORS (XAMM):PENDING GRAD (RPGR): % IMMUNIZATION STATUS COMPLETE(HLST):TEMP HOUSING : STUDENT RECORD REQUESTS (RQSR):END OF YEAR (RPKF) PRE-REGISTERED STUDENTS FOR NEXT YEAR (P,K,F,O) :(RMIN) NON-PROMOTED/NON-LIST NOTICED STUDENTS :PROMOTED W/O FUTURE CLASS : LIST NOTICED IN/NOT RECEIVED:LIST NOTICED IN W/O FUT CLS : LIST NOTICED OUT/NOT RECEIVD:***** READ THE ATS NEWS DAILY *****Press F5 to print or F8 for more informationF1/Help F2/ F3/Quit-return F4/ F5/Print F6/F7/ F8/Forw F9/ F10/Flags F11/ F12/Exit
8Monitoring End of Year Data The ATS function SEOY, End of Year Statistics, offers an on-screen view of a schools end of year data. Schools can use this function to quickly see their current progress without printing or downloading a report.Function includes:End of year statistics (similar to the STAT screen)Promotion statisticsSummer school statistics
9Monitoring End of Year Data The ATS report RMIN, End-of-Year Missing Information, lists those students who have not been given a future official class or List Noticed to a new school.Non-Promoted/Non-List Noticed StudentsPromoted Students Without Future ClassList Noticed In Students Without Future GradeList Noticed In Students Without Future ClassStudents List Noticed Out But Not Received
10Monitoring End of Year Data FOR CFNs ONLYThe ATS summary report DEOY, End of Year Statistics, lists data for all of the schools with a CFN (or Cluster). Use this report to track your schools progress and to guide your out-reach and support.Function includes:End of year statistics (similar to the STAT screen)Promotion statisticsSummer school statisticsReport is available as an FTP download into Excel.
12Future Grades For growing or truncating schools only Use the ATS function RQSA, option GRA, to add a grade code for the future school year.Example: A school currently with grades K to 2 is growing to a K to 5. The school use RQSA, option GRA, to add grade three (130) for the future school year.Use the ATS function RQSA, option GRD, to delete a grade code no longer being used in the future school year.Example: A school currently with grades K to 6 is truncating to a K to 5. The school will use RQSA, option GRD, to delete grade six (160) for the future school year.
13Modifying Future Classes Future classes must be created and maintained before students can be placed in them.Mass Class Copy – In April ATS automatically copies all current official classes into the future.Use the ATS function CFMO to create / modify future official classes.Functions just like CMOD.Use the ATS function CFDE to delete un-needed future official classes.Classes with students assigned cannot be deleted
15Assigning Future Grades and Classes Grade Level Lock within a School YearTo match Chancellor’s Regulation A-501, schools in districts 1–32 no longer have the ability to change the grade level for students in grades 3-8 (within the current school year).All requests to change student’s grade level must be submitted via RQSA to Superintendents for review and approval.Requests must include a detailed rational.
16Assigning Future Grades and Classes Two ways of assigning a future grade and class All students are moved to the next grade level for the future school year (including Special Ed students).Next Grade Level within the School(Grade Bump)Next Grade Level in a new School(List Notice Sending)
17Assigning Future Grades and Classes ExampleFutureGrade Bump to Grade Level 04 Official Class 401CurrentGrade Level 03 | Official Class 301FutureList Notice to Middle School DBNfor sixth gradeCurrentGrade Level 05 | Official Class 501
18Assigning Future Grades and Classes Grade BumpIn May ATS will automatically grade bump all students to the next grade level for the future school year.Grade levels are protected fields that appear in yellow.Only the future official class and grade code must be entered using the ATS function GPPL.

21Grade Promotion Promotion Decisions At the end of August final promotion decisions are used to “pullback” students not promoted to the next grade (retained).Grade bumped students will revert back to their previous grade level and official class.List noticed students will revert back to their previous school and grade level (placed in class 000).
22Functions designed to assign students in your terminating grade to new schools. List notice
23List NoticeATS List Notice functions are designed to assign students in your terminating grade to new schools.For example –Elementary schools list notice their 5th graders to Middle Schools.NOTE: If your school has a different terminal grade (example: K-6 schools), you will list notice your terminal grade to their new schools.
24List Notice Default List Notice Schools To make the list notice process easier ATS allows a school to setup a list of the most frequently used receiving schools.The ATS function SSTU is used to update table 740 with NYC Public Receiving Schools .The ATS function SSTU is used to update table 450 with Non-Public Receiving School.
25List Notice List Notice Sending – LNSS The ATS function LNSS is used to list notice students in the terminating grade to a new school (DOE or private).Enrollment data for students who chose their Middle School or High School is fed into ATS to populate LNSS automatically.Entering High SchoolStudents moving on to a DOE High School must be assigned a school through the High School admissions process.

35Pre-RegistrationThe ATS pre-registration function QPKF is used only for students who currently DO NOT have a DOE ID number (new to the DOE). Any student with a DOE ID number should be transfer in or list noticed in (LNIN). Using QPKF incorrectly can create duplicate ID numbers for a student. Students who are pre-registered using QPKF do not receive a admission date and will have a status of "R - Pre-Registered“. Pre-registered student will only become part of the school register once they attend the school in September and are activated. When the student is Pre-Registered, the printer will produce verification of the transaction that can be regenerated using RADT. On this page the system generated Student ID number appears.
36Pre-Registration For Pre-K and kindergarten students: A grade code and grade level are requiredAn official class is optional.A date of admissions is not required. This information will be entered in the Fall, when the students first appear for instruction, using the Activate Pre-Registered Student - ACPR function.Data used to complete the QPKF function is found on the Student Registration form.Note for PK Registration: When using this screen for PK pre-registration, enter PK in the grade level field and then press F4/Lookup to get a pre-loaded list of students who have been matched to your school in the Student Enrollment Management System (SEMS).

45Student Records Retention Student records are required to be kept on file for a mandated amount of time at the last school a student attended.The Retention Schedule (Draft) should be used to determine which student records should be retained and for how long.The Office of Legal Services and the Office of Academic Policy are still finalizing the Retention Schedule.The Office of Academic Policy is also working on a Records Request/Retention FAQ
46Student Records Retention and EOY Students’ cumulative files should be transferred to receiving schools as follows:School are responsible for transferring articulating students’ cumulative files to DOE receiving schools each spring once school placement decisions have been finalized.For students leaving the DOE and transferring to a non-NYCDOE school, the students’ cumulative files must be kept indefinitely by last DOE school the student attended. Only copies of students’ cumulative files may be sent to non-NYCDOE schools (once requested).For students entering the DOE from non-NYCDOE schools, DOE schools are responsible for contacting/confirming with the students’ prior schools and requesting copies of students’ cumulative files.
47Student Records Retention and EOY Students’ cumulative files should be transferred to receiving schools as follows:Use the PLNT (gened) and PSPE (sped) to access students’ school DBNs and distribute cumulative files accordingly.PLNT and PSPE reports should be included with the records as a cover sheet.Receiving schools can use the RQSA function in ATS to request missing records as needed.More information about student records retention can be found on page 35 of the High School Academic Policy Guide.
48Student Records Requests As per FERPA, schools are required to fulfill requests for student records within 45 days.Each school should designate a staff member as the student records keeper using the ATS function USIN.Former students who wish to obtain copies of student records should submit a completed request form to the school they last attended, accompanied by valid proof of ID.If the student’s school is no longer open the student should go to the designated record-keeping school within the building/campus with record requests.Former students are advised to contact their borough high school superintendent’s office for assistance in securing requested recordsMore information about requests for students records can be found on the public NYCDOE web site.
