The message below was sent on the PS listserv at 12:20 today. Since some people are not subscribed to the listserv (highly recommend everyone subscribing to both), we are posting it here. To subscribe to the PS listserv, send an email to:  powerschool-subscribe@lists.esu10.org.

We expected to have received an email bulletin from NDE by now which would give you more information than what is stated below. The only thing I would add is it is my understanding from the call earlier today, NDE does not want districts to approve their data if it is not correct and changes will be submitted after today.



*****************************************

The VST (Virtual Support Team) had a call with NDE at 11:00.  We were told that you will see a notification come out today (via the NDE bulletin channel) with information on how/what to do if your data is not clean by end of the day.  They will still be taking the snapshot tonight at midnight but will allow a request to submit late data to clean up any existing errors pertinent to the fall window. They do NOT want you to submit your request until TOMORROW.

There will also be directions sent out on how to approve the collections if your district is ready to do that.

Hang in there everyone!!
Happy Halloween

Here is the NDE Bulletin that was just sent out. I only included the text, so there are no images/screen shots.  If you didn't get the email containing the Bulletin and you want to get it or future bulletins, submit a ticket to NDE's Helpdesk.

**********************************
District Administrator Approval for ADVISER Validation
PLEASE NOTE:  Administrators should not sign off on their Fall data until they are satisfied that the Fall reporting data is correct.

NDE will take a snapshot of the 18-19 ADVISER data at midnight tonight, this data will be used for state reporting purposes. Tomorrow in the ADVISER Validation website, Fall collection reports will have a new Reporting Window option called “As of October 1st (Locked)” which will display the data that was saved in the snapshot.

The District Administrator Sign-Off screen for ADVISER data is now available in ADVISER Validation. Only users marked as a District Administrator through the NDE Portal will be able to access the screen. To do so, click the new link in the ADVISER Validation menu:


Then after reading the statement, click the Edit button to activate the checkbox:

Then you will be able to check the box, and you must press Update to save your approval:



Request to Submit Data Late or Make Data Changes
We are aware that many districts are still working on correcting their data due to issues with their SIS vendors and due to how late some of the validation errors have been activated. If this applies to your district, starting tomorrow you may submit a “Request to Submit Data Late or Make Data Changes” form through the CDC in the NDE Portal https://portal.education.ne.gov  where you will be able to select “ADVISER” as the collection like below:

You only need to submit one request per district assuming you are able to document all of the changes that you will be making in that request. NDE may follow up if we need more details about the corrections. Under ADVISER, you will continue to be able to submit data from your SIS software to make corrections even after the snapshot has been taken. It is highly recommended that you will fix the data in your SIS so that the “As of October 1st” validation reports (the non-locked versions) look correct before NDE will follow through with your data change request and update your snapshot data to match. Please continue to work on your data just like you have been doing throughout the audit window.

If you have already approved your data in ADVISER, but will be submitting a data change request to make additional changes, you should contact the NDE help desk at ADVISERHelp@NebraskaCloud.org to undo your original approval.

District Administrators Approval for NSSRS Validations
Finally, District Administrators will need to approve the data that has been submitted in the 2017-2018 Follow-Up Audit collection in the NSSRS Data Manager.  Only districts that have submitted data in this collection will need to approve the collection.

To Approve the 2017-2018 Follow-up Audit Collection: When logged onto the NDE Portal, click on the Student & Staff (NSSRS) tab, Click on the NSSRS Data Manager, Click on the Data Submission tab, Then select Data Approval.

Hello, 
This email is being sent to all PowerSchool districts.  The latest PowerSchool update 18.8.3.3.0 has been released and does fix several issues.   However, there are some fields in PowerSchool that districts must update in order to successfully publish their Student and Student Enrollment data. 

The Reporting School 
This field  must be filled out for ALL students including students who transferred out during this school year i.e. summer transfers, and students in your non-public or services schools. 


The field is found on the State/Province – NE Student information page
Start Page > Student Selection > Nebraska State Information > Nebraska Student Information


You will need to enter in your 9 digit (no hyphens) district/school number in this field.  For example Waverly High School would enter 550145001 in this field for all their High School students.

Here is a link to a short video on how to mass update your Reporting School Information
 https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cFQFljqL84

The English Learner (EL)
 The English Proficiency field will also need to be updated as well.  Here is another quick video on how to search and mass update those students.
 https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cFQFljqL84


If you have not done so already please register for an ADVISER workday.

If you have any additional questions please work with your PowerSchool support 
cooperative or open a ticket with NDE at ADVISERHelp@nebraskacloud.org

I want to make sure I understand the EL part first before I make mass changes... Currently all students enrolled at any time since the beginning year date need to be marked 11,12,13, or 14 in the field S_NE_STU_LEP_X.English_Prof

Current EL learners (receiving services) will be marked 11.  Students who have never been EL will be marked 14.  

Question of the day... we have students who still have this field set with 02, 03, 04, etc from previous years.  If we've updated ALL of our current EL students to 11, this means that any student with mark less than 11 should be marked as 13 (Reclassified as English Fluent) , shouldn't it?  

I didn't everything Amy said to do and my students are still not publishing.  Anyone else have any luck?
Bev Lauby

All mine finally published with zero errors or dependencies.  Try running all reports again from the top down.

Hello

I am looking to find out how other schools report Non-Public Students Receiving Assistance and have them set up in PowerSchool.   

We have students attending parochial schools but receiving speech or title services from our public school.  They are at a 0.05% FTE in our PowerSchool.

The way it has been handled is that the students are in our PowerSchool in a bogus "Grade 15" and reported by manipulating an Excel spreadsheet uploaded to NDE. 

            These students would pull on the Sped Snap, Prog Fact, Title I reports.
 
                         - as we all know, that will not work in 2018-19.

Hoping someone has some advice to prepare for future NSSRS / ADVISER Reporting.  

Thank you!

Kristy,
In Columbus we have the parochial schools listed in our PowerSchool.  We do Census reporting for Platte County. Any non-public student that is receiving Title or Sped services are in the non-public school they attend. We get a list of students from the non-public secretary at the beginning and in's & out's during the year.  We have our school number listed in the alternate school field on Schools/Info in District office.  We use the elementary school number that is closest to the non-public school (we have 5 elementary schools and there are 6 non-public elementary schools).  If you have any questions, call me at 402-563-7000 press 9 ext 11584

Suzanne 

Thank you Suzanne!!!!

I will be giving you a call to talk this through more.
It has been tough to wrap my head around...
