Just and FYI for everyone.  I was worried about getting this report done so I asked the state and this is the information they emailed me. 


The Excessive Absenteeism Monthly Collection for August/September will open on October 1st and will be due October 10th.  The October collection will open November 1st and close on November 10th.  Each month will follow as such until the May/June Collection which will open June 1st and close June 10th or, if your district operates school into the month of June, 10 days after the last day of classes for your district.

I feel I ask this question every time I do state reports.  So here I am again asking.
What start and end dates do you use for the following:

Student
School Enrollment
Year End Special Ed Snapshot
Title 1
and all the Program Facts

Thanks

Hello Everyone,

I need help running a report through the Nebraska Department of Education portal site for the staff curriculum report, that has been submitted.  If someone has time to walk me through it I would appreciate it. 

Thanks,

I can give it a try - what do you need?

Kathy,

Thanks for asking.   Russ Masco called and walked me thru it. When I was in the portal site,  I did not realize that it had a pop up blocker when I was trying to print.  But we got it.

Thanks Again,

Rebecca

How do I get this report thru the upload.  I keep getting errors.  I grabbed the file that I was sent and named it Special Ed Snap.  Has something changed?

Thanks,

can you give me your exact file name?

88-0005_special_ed_snap_201005281201.csv

The file does not have headers so make sure you don't check the box for containing headers.  If you have a mac with 10.5 you can select the file and hit space bar to show a quick view.  This does not open the file but shows the contents.  I found 3 kids missing names in mine.

I went to PowerSchool Support for a check list guide but did not find anything that was recent it was dated 2006, and there was comments not to use.  Any help with this would be appreciated.  We skipped a couple of steps last year and got kinda messy.

Hello Everyone,

What are the start dates and end dates we are to use, for student and student enrollment?

Thanks

Since school enrollment uploads only new information, use the day after your last submission and then today's date.  The report will be short and only show in and out since your last submission. 

Remember this one has no headers

Good Luck

Has anyone ever been able to run District Wide Reports for ADA/ADM.  I tried running them and I get a ALERT  No current school set. Select a school first.  I    selected the grades I wanted and still  get the Alert.  If this is not possible does any Superintendents Secretary have suggestions on how they run reports for there District. 

Thanks,

I ran my ADA/ADM by Date yesterday and ran from the beginning of school year till 9/30 and the report ran fine.  This morning I ran the report for dates 9/1 - 9/30 and I got zeros.  I then ran the exact report I ran yesterday and got zeros.  I have been on hold with PowerSchool.  Any suggestions?


Thanks,

Rebecca

I don't have an answer but would be interested when you find out.  We are having trouble with our Attendance Count report for the elementary.  Runs fine for the high school and preschool.  Set ups look identical to me. (but they must not be?)

My report is running now, but we see that my numbers are not correct for either the High School or Elem. by 30 students.  We checked our entry dates and refreshed our attendance.  Any other suggestions.



I ran ADA/ADM by Dae this mornig using 8/18/09 as the start date and it ran fine.  Then ran for only the month of September and that was OK too.

Sometimes when I get strange things I will either restart or shur down and start up my computer.  Worth a try

Hello Everyone,

I need help on the Early Childhood Programs Fact in PowerSchool. I enter them under Enrollment-Special Programs there you have a choice to add New.  I have students that were on the program last year and some new kids this year.  Those that were on last year, do I need to exit them from last year and add a new year for this year or do they just stay in?  I do have kids that have moved and are not attending this year so do I have to show an exit date on them?

Thanks for your time.

Hello,

We are just getting started on our Program Fact Report and are not sure on Participants.
Are all students considered participants, or just those that took vocational classes?

Thanks,

Only those taking vocational classes that are in an approved program of study.

Thank You Graci!
We have a couple more questions when we enter Program District School Code - do we select the custom code  and Technical Skill Attainment - not applicable?

Thanks,
Rebecca


Here is a link that may help with the definition of participants

http://www.nde.state.ne.us/nce/PerkinsIV/AccountabilityQA.htm

One word of caution is that if you have a concentrator make sure you put in the proper technical skill attainment code which would be something other than by leaving the field blank.  If by chance you leave a blank for a concentrator it will give you an error in NSSRS Validation.  If you find you made a mistake and need to change a blank to another code and it will not fix by re-uploading the corrected file you may need to contact me or the helpdesk and we can do a delete of the old record.  Then we will have you send up the record again with the proper code.  It is not a key field but for some reason it is not allowing updates to that field at this time like most other non-key fields function.
The best way to reach me is by email russ.masco@nebraska.gov

Most of the people at the NSSRS workday yesterday at Kearney did NOT have access to the Post School Survey.  For those who could see it, it didn't run properly.  So the work around was to download the post school survey template from NDE at http://www.nde.state.ne.us/nssrs/Docs/99-9999_PROGRAMS_FACT_YYYYMMDDHHMM.xls and fill in the info. 

You can get a list of students to be reported from the Validation page under Programs Fact on the left side.  Change to last year and pull the info for Career Ed and choose the school as well as Concentrators.  Then submit.  It will list last year's concentrators.


Thank you so much!

Have a great weekend! :)

I sent my report through the Portal and made it all the way through the validation and had 1 error on an students     CEBUSMGT    Not Applicable    CE0003

I know it should be Meet Technical attainment through locally developed criterion CE0003.

Is this what you told me to make sure and watch!  I was trying to be so careful and missed this one.  What now?  Is this something I can re-run and fix or does the state.

I got this fixed for Rebecca but just so everyone else knows the answer I am posting this.  You can try to run it up again with the proper technical skill attainment code but chances are it won't update the old record due to a glitch which is making that field non-updateable (if that is a word).  If this happens please contact me or the helpdesk and have the old (wrong)record deleted.  You can then send up the record with the proper code again and it should get rid of the error.  It is just that this field is not overwriting as it should be when the new value is entered so we have to go the delete and re-enter route for now.

How long can we wait to do the end of year process?  Is there a cut off date?

Thanks,

There is no set date you have to do EOY as there is when storing grades. You will only have to run it before the start of school.

I would recommend waiting until after the June 30th NSSRS deadline just in case you have to fix something.  We usually wait until the last week of July as our new year starts August 1.

Thank You Wayne and Bryan!

Hello Everyone,

Title I report is it linked to our Student report?  We have a private school that we service and we  have to add those students into that report.  We got errors back on those students. 

We also have questions on the Special Education Snapshot?  How is the report done?

Thanks,

We are running the Seniors transcript and we are trying to get the Graduation Date to appear on there.  We have it set to pull (graduation_date) but no date comes out.  Where in PowerSchool is that date put in?

I created a new custom screen with a field for graduation date.  Import the correct date for seniors each year and then it pulls correctly.  Good luck!

Thank You Kris !

Hello,
I am working on my student snapshot and see my new student that transfered in on May 12th will not show up in my student snapshot.  He will show in Student Enrollment and Student.  Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I am at the ESU10 working and this one has everyone puzzled.

We found the answer.  My beginning date of the snapshot report has to be todays date and the ending date June 30th.

I put in the day after school was out, 05/22/2009, and got only the high school. When I put in today's date I get a blank report. Any ideas?

Hello Peggy,
What is the last day you had a student enroll?  I had a student come in the month of April and May 12th.  So we used May 21st.  They showed at the end of the report.  Try the last day of school.
Let me know or call me.

If you have one of the latest versions of Premier, you can run a report from PowerTeacher Administrator. PowerSource KB article 56081, pg 23, describes how to run the report.

Hello Everyone,

My counselor is scheduling for next year.  It is not allowing her to enroll students.   With out doing the year end process is there something else she can do to start enrolling?
Comments
2 Responses to "Scheduling for 2009-2010"

If you are wanting to enroll students into courses for next year, you will have to setup a Load in PowerScheduler. There are a few steps involved with this.  PowerSource KB articles 6305 & 6750

You cannot schedule students on the live side for next year until you move into next year.  Even if you do not use Preschooler to create your schedule you need to set it up for scheduling if you want to enter schedules before you preform the EOY process. 

You may want to check knowledgebase article 55644 on PowerSource for additional info.  Use the Load only process.  Let me know if I can help you.

Good luck!

Hello Everyone,

I have a problem with my FTE for Pre School not showing the 100% FTE, in the NSSRS Student File.
Where do I set this up?

Do you have the FTE set up under School > Full Time Equivalencies (FTE)?

The FTE shows on the State/Province - NE > Student Information Page. If nothing is selected, you can change them all by selecting all of the students and use Student Field Value in the functions.

I have the FTE set up under School, and FTE.  I have looked at my other schools to see if I have missed something but I know I have to be missing something, I just can not locate it.  I did go back through and check everyone under the state and also in my transfer info.  Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
