First and foremost, thank you for your patience during the first week of school. Not only were our schools opening their door for the 2014-2015 school year, but we also rolled out a new fully-integrated student information system, built with modern technology and ultimately enabling the District to exit the federally mandated Modified Consent Decree.
We encountered some challenges, but together we continue to get past the hurdles: with school-based staff voicing issues and our technical team working to resolve them. We know it will take time for our teachers, principals and other administrators to get comfortable with MiSiS and we ask for your continued patience and understanding as the technical team continues to work on improving system performance.
As of Monday, August 18, access will be restored to all teachers so that attendance can be taken in MiSiS.
- For Elementary teachers, the interface and experience will be the same when logging in to take attendance.
- For our Middle and High School teachers, you may experience a slightly different user experience when you log in and access the attendance screen.
- You'll be using a "lighter version" of the attendance screen for the time being. All this means is you will only have the essential tools to complete student enrollment, scheduling, and attendance. Once the full version is ready for use, other supplemental tools such as the seating chart will be available for use.
