DASL/EMIS Salt Fork Presentation 2009 Brenda Hartley, Presenter Omeresa Student Services/EMIS
2 Gifted The Gifted module consists of default Gifted Rules, the Gifted Mass Update, and the individual Student Gifted Records. Set up the Gifted Rules Maintenance for the district (blank rule for new students), district/grade level rules, or for the building, building/grade level rules, as needed. These rules will be used as the default values for the Gifted Mass Update. Use the Gifted Mass Update process to restore students to the Gifted Rule defaults for screening, assessment, and served by district, building, and/or grade level. This is normally done on a yearly basis. (Usually the beginning of the school year) Warning! This process will undo any screened or assessed values on the students gifted record if Overwrite Existing Student Gifted records is chosen. If the Reset Served option is chosen, the served values will be reset for the specified grade level. If you have already begun updating records for the current school year, these options will reset anything the districts have done. Adjust individual Student Gifted Records as necessary in preparation for the EMIS Transfer.
3 Gifted Rules Maintenance This page allows the user to set default values to be used when running the Gifted Mass Update. A default record may be defined at the district level or at the building level for each grade level, or for all grade levels. Building level rules override district level rules and building level grade level rules override district level grade level rules. The Gifted Mass Update will apply the default values in the Gifted Rules Maintenance to the student gifted records. It is very important to have the proper Gifted Rules set up to prevent aggregate errors during the EMIS Transfer process.
4 Gifted Every district should have a district default rule set up with a blank grade level and nothing checked for Screening or Assessed. This will be the default rule for all new students coming into the district. When the Gifted Mass Update rules are processed, any student missing a record will have a record created for them when the rules are applied. In addition, grade level rules may also be defined to update the screening performed for the year. Once the mass update has been applied, rules may be changed if students enrolled after the initial mass update has taken place. These students should receive a record with nothing checked because they were not enrolled at the time of the district wide screening. Gifted Rules will be set up based on the screening practices for your district and building. As a general rule, almost all other Gifted Rules for district, building, and/or grade level will only have the Screening box(es) checked.
5 Accessing the Gifted Set Up Screens Navigation: Management – School Administration – EMIS
7 Adding a District Default Gifted Rules Record If a district is in context, only district level rules will be displayed. District level rules are editable only at the district level. In this case, the default values would apply to all students in all buildings. Every district should have a District Rule that is set up with all blank values. This will be the default rule for all new students and for students who did not have a gifted record in the previous year.
8 Gifted District Default Rule: Default Rule should look like this!
9 Gifted District Record for 2 nd Grade Screening All 2 nd graders in the district are screened in the areas checked below and will be updated with these defaults.
10 Adding a Building Default Gifted Record Log into the Building you wish to set up a separate rule for. All 3 rd grade students in this building ONLY are screened for Visual Performing Arts.
11 Gifted Building Rules If a school building is in context, all school level as well as all district level rules will display. As displayed above, district level rules cannot be managed from the school level. The edit and delete icons will be locked. The user may still view the district level rule using the magnifying glass. The rules will be ordered by grade level – with rules not having a specified grade level displaying first. This page has standard add record, edit record and delete record controls.
13 Gifted Building Rules The School Code column identifies the district or building where the Rule was created and is automatically populated when a Rule is created. In the above example, default values on the building level rule for 3rd grade would overrule any district 3rd grade rules (if there were any).
15 Gifted Mass Update This page allows the user to restore Student Gifted Records to the appropriate screening and assessment defaults by district, building, and/or grade level. Served can be reset by grade level or for all grade levels. The resetting of Screening, Assessment, and Served defaults on Student Gifted Records is normally done on an annual basis. Identified and Identified Date are never reset. The Gifted Mass Update screen consists of two parts: Mass Update of Gifted Rules – used to restore the Screening and Assessment values to the appropriate defaults. This needs to be done in order to wipe out values from the previous year. Reset Served Values – used to reset the Served values for all grade levels or a specific grade level This process will undo any screened or assessed values on the students gifted record if Overwrite Existing Student Gifted records is chosen. If the Reset Served option is chosen, the served values will be reset for the specified grade level. If you have already begun updating records for the current school year, these options will reset anything the districts have done. You may want to limit access to the Gifted Mass Update process since it can be used to restore all selected students to default Gifted Rules by district, building, and/or grade level – overriding manual screening, assessment, and served Gifted entries if they have already been made.
17 Gifted Mass Update of Rules Select (by moving to the right) the Gifted Rule(s) (required) - that you wish to use for the Gifted Mass Update. If a District is in context, District Gifted Rules will display and be available. If a Building is in context, Building Gifted Rules will display and be available. Grade level rules will take precedence over non-grade level rules. If a student is enrolled in more than one building, the rule for the students primary building or grade level/building will be used. Overwrite Existing Student Gifted records (optional) – If checked, will overwrite Student Gifted records with the Screening and Assessment values from the applicable Gifted Rules. If not checked, existing Student Gifted records will not be updated. Checking this option will override any manual Screening and Assessment values on the Student Gifted Records for any students that fit the parameters of the selected Gifted Rules.
24 Student Gifted Record Special Note concerning dates before 2000 For students identified prior to 2000 with an unknown identified date, enter a date of 1/1/1900. The EMIS Transfer process will translate this date to all asterisks (******). Any existing student gifted records with Identified Dates of ****** will display as 1/1/1900 and will be translated to ****** during the EMIS Transfer process.
25 Mapping in DASL EMIS The Mapped Local Classroom Code Record is a new FY09 EMIS record that can be set up in DASL. The purpose of this record is to allow a district to map (combine) the students from a specific class into another class. Mapping means combining (merging) students from two or more classes in EMIS to look like a single class.
27 Mapping CTRMEMIS must first be processed in update mode before creating mapped records. When the user first navigates to the screen, a check is performed to ensure that Student Staff Classroom records exist for the district in context and current reporting period (i.e. checking that CTERMEMIS has been run). If the records do not exist, this message will be displayed. Student Staff Classroom records do not exist for the current reporting period. CTERMEMIS must be run for the current reporting period before Mapped Local Classroom Code Records can be maintained.
29 Mapping Records The Subject Code, Course Type, and Employee ID must be the same on both the Mapped From / To Local Classroom Codes. If either of these three do not match, an error message will be displayed. This page has standard add record, edit record and delete record controls.
30 Mapped Record Added HINT – Print out the screen shots from 09K Reflections and set up the DASL Mapping EXACTLY as it was reported in October. If any new mapped courses have been added for the 2 nd semester, these can also be set up at this time for February C and Yearend N reporting.
32 Vocational Correlated Record From this screen, the user may access the Vocational Correlated Records. Vocational Correlated records are used by the CTE department of ODE to show the courses which tie together to create a vocational Program. These records are required for vocational courses. All records will need to be added manually, however, any record that is reported in Period K should also be reported again in periods C and N. The values for each of the three fields use the local classroom codes created by the CTRMEMIS/CLISEMIS process. Once CTRMEMIS/CLISEMIS has been processed in Update mode, the correlated record dropdowns will be populated from the Listing of local classroom codes in EMIS Maintenance – Student Staff Classroom records.
33 Vocational Program Correlated Record HINT – Print out the screen shots from 09K Reflections and set up the DASL Program Correlation EXACTLY as it was reported in October. (If you had errors in Oct. and a program was not funded due to Program correlation then correct this for February and Yearend reporting.)
34 EMIS Reporting Period G Core Summary Record – must indicate total credits earned in each core subject area Core Subject Areas to be specified by ODE Dept. of Curriculum Cumulative record to be reported for grades 9-12 and include any Core credits earned in Jr. High Graduating Seniors only reported in FY09 Reporting period G All students to be reported in FY10 Yearend ODE Web Site/ Teaching/ Instruction/ Graduation Requirements-Ohio Core

45 Notes Regarding School Year Initialization School Year Initialization Check your PS students. If grade level next year was not KG then they did not get promoted to Kindergarten. If they go to several different elementary buildings you have to manually enter the Building Progression Track on their Additional tab. Student Statuss Edit the status description to more specifically define the students status.
46 Examples of Bulk Enrollment Status Confusion
49 Status Codes Try to keep status codes to 2 characters. Dasl allows 4 but Progress Book currently only recognizes the first 2 characters. You can keep the current status code and just edit the description. Avoid starting different descriptions with the same word unless abbreviated. Ex: Resident Open Enrolled Out, Resident Court Placed Out, Resident attending MRDD. Instead: R-OE out, R-Ct. Pl. out, R-MRDD Make sure the overall status meets the needs of your district and 3 rd party software programs. Active vs. Inactive
52 Calendar Dates Wizard Earlier First Day of School - How to change the first day of school to start earlier than originally planned?
