I just discovered all our students with last names beginning with O' (O'Brien, O'Leary, etc.) on the Access Accounts screen show student usernames and Access IDs all the same: the single letter O. When I do a quick export of those web ID fields, the correct usernames and IDs show up on the export. Also, I see these students have logged in recently and I'm assuming they are not using the ID of O. I have no idea how or when this happened. (During the update to 8.0?) Has anyone else seen weird web IDs with O' names? Not sure if I should just re-enter the IDs so will be calling support on Monday.

Has anyone noticed that the State/Province screen has changed.  The field for Alternate assessment prompts you to answer  "No for all student below Grade 03" but does not allow you to choose No as an answer.  I thought that maybe when I ran the report it would populate with a 2 but that is not the case....the field comes out blank.  (This is for just the student's screen I have changed this year....the screen that hasn't been touched is pulling correctly.)
When I looked on PowerSource at the Nebraska Extract Guide, it shows that the alternate assessment field is not being collected (Line 23) but the state documentation indicates that it is (which I believe). 

One more thing, when I extract the report it is still pulling column 48 for Surrogate Appointed.  In the 14-15 template instructions, it is no longer asking for that information.

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.  I know I could manipulate the data once it's been extracted but would like it to come out right from PowerSchool.
I appreciate this group!

I stopped putting that info into PwrSchool and pull it straight from SRS (found out some things were "lost in translation" from what was in SRS  on the IEP & the info our teachers gave me to put into SRS  (IE % of time with regular peers -vs- sped peers ---some people read that kind of question differently and have #'s from different areas of the IEP)
.  
The SRS export pulls it exactly as it is in the IEP.
.  
One problem in that though is if there is an error (or "red mark" in SRS) that student will not pull on the NSSRS export until that is corrected.  We are finding it is usually the IEP is just over 1 year or the MDT is just over 3 yrs.  
.  
So might need to get in the habit of uploading to NDE monthly to keep those current.  Hope that helps...& hope I don't run into issues with the way I do it...Thanks!

Lori,
You need to open a case up in PowerSchool so Dawn Colon our state person can fix it .  
I have not updated my State reports yet so I have not run any reports yet.

Thanks Suzanne...I can sure open up a case.  Do I just do it through PowerSource and tag it a state reporting issue or do you have a way to contact Dawn directly?

Is anyone using Incident Management yet for tracking disciplinary events, points, etc? If so, could I barrage you with a few questions on how you have it set up? TIA.

OK ... I promise not to "barrage" you with questions ... would just like to see how another school has it set up. Anyone using Incident Management yet??

I think there had been a session at the ESU in Kearney in July about it...I attended the session but haven't set up all of the possibilities with it yet.
