SIS Bulletin May 5, 2016 - Entering a Project Mark for G12 Social Studies



Hello high school users,



This bulletin is to inform high schools on how to submit Project Marks for grade 12 social studies courses of NSS3001/3002 Social Studies 30-1/30-2. These courses require the teacher to provide both a School Mark and a Project Mark. They have to be provided separately. Maplewood connectEd has already been set up in order to make this possible: the teacher will find Mark topic for the School Mark and Project topic for the Project mark.



The calculation of the Final Mark using 70/30 weighting is done automatically by the system. The teachers do not have to set this weighting up.



NOTE: If the teacher is using Markbook, then the Project Mark should not be included as a Category or an Item under the Mark topic. Instead, find the Project topic in Markbook and input the Project Mark under that topic.



SIS Bulletin, April 15 2016: SIS next year setups and Approved Course List

Education Program Plan (EPP):

This is a reminder that all schools are expected to complete the steps in the attached "How to prepare SIS for next year" document no later than 30 days before the end of the school year. The steps are the same as in the previous years. The Principal of the schools is responsible for ensuring that the steps get completed and the deadline met.

The expectations and the 30-day timeline stem from the new Education Program Plan (EPP) Directive lightweight implementation that the Department has embarked on. The content of this Directive will be introduced during the 2016-17 school year. The Directive defines the process for school year planning and education program plan review.

Once finished, please submit the EPP Approval Form (attached) to your Superintendent to signal that the SIS setup steps have been completed.

[Initial communication on this matter should have taken place in early April.]

Secondary School Approved Course List 2016-17:

Also attached is the 2016-17 Secondary School Approved Course List. The list stays the same for the most part but a few courses expire this June. The list was originally distributed in late March and hopefully reached you then already.

If you have any questions regarding EPP or the approved course list, please do not hesitate to contact me. For SIS support on completing the steps in the "How to prepare SIS for next year" document, please touch base with Ross Learn or myself and we will help you through it.

SIS Bulletin October 5, 2015 - Enrolment data collection for school funding

Hello all principals,

School enrolment and attendance are observed on the 30th of September in order to determine school funding for the following school year. After September 30th, the Department observes the number of students in the school and determines their Full Time Equivalency (FTE). The total sum of FTEs is the basis for next year’s funding.

A student’s FTE is primarily based on grade and attendance:
  • Kindergarten students have an FTE of 0.5,
  • Regular day students 1.0 and Non-Attenders* 0.0
  • Other categories such as Home-Schooled students exist – inquire for details

*Non-attendersare defined as students who have less than 40 % attendance in the month of September. Excused absences do not factor into this figure; it is based on truancies only.

It is expected that schools have completed the following steps in SIS by September 30th:
1. All students physically attending at the school have been registered (added) in SIS and are showing up in attendance collection screens
2. Students that have moved away or have not been attending for at least 21 consecutive days are assigned a status of “Deleted/Withdrawn” in SIS. Follow the steps in this document: How to Withdraw Students in SIS
3. Attendance for the month of September is complete and available in SIS for reporting and excused attendance codes have been used where applicable

Excused attendance codes:
Family trip (F): Student is on a family trip or vacation with the parents' or guardians’ approval
Health (H): Student is unable to attend for a health reason
Out on land (O): Student is participating in traditional activities on the land or in other learning experiences away from the community
Spiritual (S): Student is participating in a spiritual or religious observance
Compassionate (C): Student has been excused by the principal on special or compassionate grounds such as a death, illness in the family, or other unavoidable cause
Excursion (E): Student is unable to attend due to a school team excursion (e.g. field trip, sports trip) during which the student is accompanied by a teacher

Please inform us immediately if you have any initial concerns about your enrolment numbers or attendance data for the month of September in SIS. Besides that, he SIS team will proceed with extracting the information from SIS during this week and will be in touch with you for potential questions.



Hello elementary school users,

This bulletin provides information on how Promotion Status for elementary school students is communicated on the final term (Term 3) report cards.

The elementary term three report card now lists both Grade and Next Year's Grade on page one. These two pieces of information together communicate whether the student is 'promoted to next grade' or 'retained in current grade'.

Next Year's Grade is the grade the student will be entering in the next school year. This is set in the Biographics tab in Student Records in Maplewood. By default, Next Year's Grade is always one grade higher than this year's grade; everybody will be promoted by default. However, if there are students that will be retained in their current grade, the school has to set their Next Year's Grade value to be the same as this year's grade. This ensures that 1) the student will be in the correct grade next year and 2) the report card will reflect the fact that they are retained.

SIS Bulletin May 12, 2015 - Upcoming CTS master coding change

Hello high school users,

The SIS team is planning a coding change for generic CTS master codes currently available in Maplewood. The purpose of the coding change is to simplify the coding.

Examples of the upcoming course code changes:

CTS0001 will become CTS 1
CTS0002 will become CTS 2
FAS0001 will become FAS 1
FAS0002 will become FAS 2
FOD0001 will become FOD 1
FOD0002 will become FOD 2
COM0001 will become COM 1
COM0002 will become COM 2

...and so forth in similar manner with all the other CTS master codes.

The coding change will take effect at the end of this week. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.


SIS Bulletin May 7, 2015 - Preparing Maplewood for next year

Hi all users,

A function called Initialize Scheduling has been run for your school. This means that you can now start working under the Scheduling menu in the Maplewood system to work on staffing, homeroom and class assignments for next year.

All preparation work for next school year happens under the Scheduling menu, NOT the File menu. Working under the Scheduling menu does not affect any of this school year’s information.

The work you will be doing under the Scheduling menu will directly contribute towards completing the Part A of Secondary School Program Planning (a high school requirement currently but elementary schools need to complete the setups as well). Part A should be ready for review by the Superintendent 30 days before the end of the school year. The Superintendent can verify Part A readiness directly through the Maplewood system. More information on Part A can be found in the Secondary School Administration Handbook.

Below is a list of documentation you may print to guide you through the preparation process.

SIS Bulletin March 30, 2015 - June Exam Registrations

Hello high school users,

This bulletin explains the process of registering pupils for Alberta June exams using Maplewood Student Information System. The deadline for June Alberta high school exam registrations is April 10th, 2015.

Preparation steps in SIS for June exam registrations:

STEP 1: Ensure you have a class for the Alberta exam course (for example ELA3104b) in your Classes File for semester two (or full year).
STEP 2: Assign students to that class so that the class (for example ELA3104b) shows up in their Timetable tab. If you have 17 students in the class, all 17 will be registered for June exams.
STEP 3: Ensure mailing addresses have been recorded for these students in Student Records, Family/Contacts tab. Without the mailing address, the student cannot be registered for the exam(s). If you do not have the student's mailing address, then please use the school's mailing address.
TIPS FOR STEP 3: At minimum, fill City, PO Box, Postal code and Territory. Use "NU" as Territory instead of "Nunavut". Phone number is optional.

A special note on re-writers: if you have students who only want to re-write the exam but not do the classroom work this fall, they need to be dealt with separately. Follow steps in the attached document to deal with re-writers.

The SIS team will extract the exam registrants and will verify their names with the school prior to submitting the registrations to Alberta. We will be in touch with you at that time.

Find attached a document that describes the preparation steps in greater detail. Follow the document to complete your exam registrations.



SIS Bulletin March 25, 2015 - Locking reporting terms

Hello all users,

This bulletin explains what reporting term locking/unlocking means and why schools should do that after report cards have been printed.

After a reporting term has finished and report cards have been produced, it is recommended that the previous reporting term be locked. At the same time, the next reporting term must be unlocked. The purpose of locking term one is to disable unintentional changes to marks after a reporting term has finished. Legitimate changes to past marks should be done via the office. Furthermore, if the next reporting term is not unlocked, then mark entry will not be possible for the new reporting term. Locking/unlocking is an important step that should be completed by the office after each reporting term.

SIS Bulletin March 2, 2015 - Credits for Withdrawn Students

Hello high school users,

This bulletin contains important information on ensuring that high school students who have left the school at the end of semester one will receive credits for the work they have done.

Recently, Automatic Transcript Update (ATU) was run for high school students in order to update their course histories with semester one course completions. Depending on dates, students who left your school close to the end of the semester may not have had their semester one marks posted to their history because they were withdrawn before we ran ATU.

We would like you to check if there were any Deleted/Withdrawn students that should have received updates to their course histories but did not. To see all Deleted/Withdrawn students quickly, open Student Records, search for "%" and then click on the Status column two times to get the Deleted/Withdrawn students to show at the top of the search results. Do your checking by going to a student's History tab, looking for 2015/01 entries.

Please notify us if you find any such cases and we will run the ATU specifically for these students.

SIS Bulletin January 26, 2015 - Inuktitut comment issues resolved

Hello all,

Last week an issue was detected where Inuktitut syllabic comments were showing up as question marks on report cards. The issue was reported to Maplewood mid-week and it was fixed this morning about 1 hour ago. The comments should now work properly on report cards. However, any previously entered Inuktitut syllabic comments will have to be re-entered; they will not automatically fix themselves. We apologize for the inconvenience.

SIS Bulletin December 12, 2014 - Inputting Project Mark for G12 Social Studies

Hello high school users,

This bulletin is to inform high schools on how to submit Project Marks for grade 12 social studies courses of NSS3001/3002 Social Studies 30-1/30-2. These courses require the teacher to provide both a School Mark and Project Mark, separately. Maplewood connectEd has been set up so that this is possible. The calculation of the Final Mark using 70/30 weighting is done automatically by the system. The teachers do not have to set this weighting up.

Attached is a PDF that should be provided to the grade 12 social studies teacher at your school if you are offering that course. Should you or they have any questions, please contact one of the SIS Coordinators (Markus Siivola and Ross Learn) or your region's IT Program Coordinator for help.

NOTE: If the teacher is using Markbook, then the Project Mark should not be included as a Category or an Item under the Mark topic. Instead, find the Project topic in Markbook and input the Project Mark results under that topic.

This bulletin will also be posted on the SIS Wikispace: http://nunavutsis.wikispaces.com.


SIS Bulletin December 9, 2014 - Locking reporting terms and dealing with students on excursions

Hello all users,

This bulletin consists of two parts. Part I applies to all schools and provides instructions on locking and unlocking reporting terms. Part II applies to secondary schools (including K-12 schools) and discusses dealing with students who are on school trips or excursions.

PART I: Locking first reporting term and unlocking second
After the first reporting term has finished, it is recommended that the first reporting term belocked. At the same time, the second term must be unlocked. The purpose of locking term one is to disable unintentionalchanges to marks after a reporting term has finished and report cards have been printed. Legitimate changes to past marks should be done via the office.Further, if term two is not unlocked, mark entry for termtwo will not be possible through connectEd. Locking/unlocking is an important step that should be completed by the office after each reporting term.

Click here for steps on locking/unlocking reporting terms

PART II: Recording attendance for students on excursions in secondary schools
Note: this is not applicable to schools that do not offer grades 10-12

When a group of student goes on a school excursion, an attendance code of 'Excursion' should be recorded for them for the duration of the excursion. The 'Excursion' code basically counts as 'Present' in attendance reports. This task is completed by going to Attendance -> Enter Attendance -> Excursions. The Excursions feature allows the user to set an attendance code for a group of students for a range of dates.

Limitation in current practice:
It has been brought to our attention that there is one potential limitation in the current practice, best explained through an example. If a group of 10 students goes on a trip to Europe for 10 days, then the office would normally enter 'Excursion' code into their attendance register before the trip. However, during the trip, the office initializes attendance each day and teachers have to mark these students 'Absent', 'Present' or 'Late'. Since the students are not in the class, the teachers are trained to mark them as 'Absent'. As a result, 'Absent' will go into the register instead of 'Excursion' when attendance is posted.

Recommended workaround:
It is recommended that the office puts in the 'Excursion' code at the end of the school trip rather than before the trip. However, if report cards are produced during the trip, then the office should do the task just before the report cards are printed and then again after the students return. This ensures that the report cards have accurate attendance information on them. Maplewood will provide a changed software design in 2015. After that, the workaround will no longer be needed.

SIS Bulletin December 5, 2014 - January Exam School Marks

Hello high school users,

This bulletin is to inform how high schools can submit school marks for pupils taking part in departmental exam courses. Schools must provide a school mark before the students can take the Alberta exam in January.

For any course that has an Alberta exam, the school marks must be provided by the teacher by inputting the marks in Maplewood connectEd for the final term just like for any regular class. The marks must be in by end of day, January 16, 2015 (Friday).

If a student is re-writing only and not doing the classroom portion of the course, then the latest best mark will be submitted automatically to Alberta. In this case, the teacher does not have to provide a new mark.

There is no need to submit marks by email to the RSO or to any of the SIS Coordinators. The SIS Coordinators will extract the marks from SIS and review the marks. They will follow up with schools regarding any missing marks.

SIS Bulletin October 14 - January Exam Registrations

Hello high school users,

This bulletin explains the process of registering pupils for Alberta January exams using Maplewood Student Information System.

The deadline for January Alberta high school exam registrations is October 24, 2014. Please follow the steps below to ensure that your students can be registered for Alberta exams.

STEP 1: Ensure you have Classes for the Alberta exam courses (e.g. ELA3104) in your Classes File for semester one (or full year).
STEP 2: Assign students to that class so that the class (e.g. ELA3104a) shows up in the students' Timetable tab. If you have 17 students in the class, all 17 will be registered for January exams.
STEP 3: Ensure mailing addresses have been recorded for these students in Student Records, Family/Contacts tab. Without the mailing address, the student cannot be registered for the exam(s). If you do not have the student's mailing address, then please use the school's mailing address.

TIPS FOR STEP 3: At minimum, fill City, PO Box, Postal code and Territory. Use "NU" as Territory instead of "Nunavut". Phone number is optional.

May 29, 2014: Final Summative Assessments (FSA): reminder

Hi,

This is a reminder for all schools offering grades 7-12 to fill in the Final Summative Assessment (FSA) mark in Maplewood connectEd at the end of the year. In-service was provided for Final Summative Assessments earlier this year and this is a follow-up on that in-service.

As a refresher, the in-service presentation is attached as a PDF to this email. If you have trouble opening the attachment, please let me know.

Who should be inputting the Final Summative Assessment (FSA) mark?
  • Teachers in senior high grades fill in the FSA mark for all courses except CTS courses
  • In grades 7-9, teachers fill in the FSA mark for core courses only
  • K-6: you are not expected to provide Final Summative Assessment marks

How do I input the FSA mark?
  • See page 6 of the attached PDF ("Reporting Final Summative Assessments Day 1B.pdf") for instructions on how to do this in Maplewood connectEd. NOTE: Expect to see “FSA” column instead of “Summat” column.
  • If Markbook is being used, follow instructions on page 8



SIS Bulletin, May 23 - Preparing Maplewood for next year (includes Part A information)

Hello all users,

This email provides instructions for all schools on how to prepare Maplewood system this spring so that it is "turnkey" ready next fall. The attached PDF document provides the major steps on how to complete this task. The PDF also describes, once all the work has been completed, how secondary schools can produce their Part A report that is required by the Regional School Operations.

Note for elementary and middle schools: while the document talks about scheduling classes, you are not expected to put in schedules for your classes (they can remain as "floaters"). Scheduling all classes is only required for senior high schools or some junior high grades that want to do period-by-period attendance.

Key points:
  • When you work on next year's information, work under Scheduling menu, not File menu. When you work under Scheduling menu, you are not affecting this year's information. This year's information is under File menu.
  • Build your classes for next year under Scheduling menu, Modify Files, Classes
  • Part A report for secondary schools is due no later than 30 days before the end of the school year. See the final section of the document on how to produce it




SIS Bulletin, May 22 - Kindergarten Pre-Registrations

Hello elementary school users,

Kindergarten students arriving next fall are typically registered in the spring. Now is the time for it. This email provides information to elementary schools on how to complete Kindergarten pre-registrations in Maplewood.

Step-by-step document on Kindergarten pre-registrations: http://nunavutsis.wikispaces.com/file/view/How%20to%20Pre-Register%20Kindergarten%20Students.pdf/434802680/How%20to%20Pre-Register%20Kindergarten%20Students.pdf

Please print out the document and follow the instructions.

Key points - please read this:
  • It is important to verify the student’s Legal Name and Date of Birth using a verification document provided by the parent. This could be a birth certificate or other government issued document.
  • Use "200 – New Registration" as Registration Entry Status

SIS Bulletin, May 21 - Retaining Students in Grade

Hello all users,

This bulletin explains how to handle students who are not supposed to move up a grade next school year. The attached PDF document explains the steps in Maplewood on how to retain students in their current grade next year.

By default, all students will move up a grade next school year in Maplewood. Students who are in the final grade offered by the school are set to exit the school at the end of this school year. If there are students who should not move up (or exit from final grade), follow the steps in the attached PDF to keep them in the same grade next year.

Example 1: a grade 12 student will not graduate this year and wants to return next year to finish studies. Please follow steps in the attached PDF.

Example 2: a grade 5 student will not be promoted to grade 6 for next year. Please follow steps in the attached PDF.


SIS Bulletin May 16 - Part A course offerings and preparation for next year

Hello,

This is a reminder for everybody that Secondary School Program Plan Part A is to be completed in Maplewood SIS this year and not in FileMaker Pro like in the previous years. All this work is to be completed in Maplewood remote desktop (admin side) under the Scheduling menu. If you work under the File menu, you are working on this year’s information; Working under Scheduling menu means working on next year’s information, such as homeroom assignment and student timetables for next year.*

Part A is an equivalent of building the master timetable for next year for high schools. By doing the Part A in SIS under Scheduling menu, you are making the system ready for next year. Completing Part A is mandatory for each secondary school.

Quick tips to get started:**

  1. The 2014-15 approved courses have been loaded to Scheduling, Modify Files, Courses. You can only offer courses that are included in that Courses File.
  2. To create your next year’s master timetable, work under Scheduling, Modify Files, Classes. The starting point is an exact copy of this year’s Classes File. Use Delete button to delete Classes that will not be offered next year. Edit existing Classes that you want to keep. Use Add button to add completely new Classes or additional sections.
  3. Use Patterns or Special Schedule button to schedule the Classes just like you scheduled them for this year. If you need help setting up new Patterns, contact Markus or Ross.
  4. Assign teachers to Classes for next year. If you do not know who will be hired to teach the classes, you can create new Staff members under fake names such as NEWMATHTEACHER under the Staff menu and use it as the Class Teacher. Once hiring is complete, you can just change the staff name to match the person’s name.

Next week we will send more information on how the Part A reports are produced from SIS. The reports are printed once you have completed your master timetable building.

Also find attached documents that have been sent to you previously.





SIS Bulletin March 21 - June Exam Registrations

Hello high school users,

This bulletin explains the process of registering pupils for Alberta June exams using Maplewood Student Information System.

The deadline for June Alberta high school exam registrations is April 4th, 2014. By now you should have received the notification on this deadline from the Student Records Registrar Julia Tautuajuk. If you have not, please contact Julia in order to be added to the email distribution list. This way we can ensure that you are receiving all the communications.

Preparation steps in SIS for June exam registrations:

STEP 1: Ensure you have a class for the Alberta exam course (e.g. ELA3104) in your Classes File for semester two (or full year).

STEP 2: Assign students to that class so that the class (e.g. ELA3104b) shows up in their Timetable tab. If you have 17 students in the class, all 17 will be registered for June exams.

STEP 3: Ensure mailing addresses have been recorded for these students in Student Records, Family/Contacts tab. Without the mailing address, the student cannot be registered for the exam(s). If you do not have the student's mailing address, then please use the school's mailing address.

TIPS FOR STEP 3: At minimum, fill City, PO Box, Postal code and Territory. Use "NU" as Territory instead of "Nunavut". Phone number is optional.

The SIS team will extract the exam registrants and will verify their names with the school prior to submitting the registrations to Alberta. We will be in touch with you at that time.

Find attached a document that describes the preparation steps in greater detail. Follow the document to complete your exam registrations.


SIS Bulletin (II) March 21 - Validation Statements

Hello high school users,

This bulletin explains the process of producing Validation Statements in Maplewood Student Information System.

Starting this school year, Validation Statements will be produced by the school; they will no longer be produced by the Student Records Registrar.

You can print Validation Statements in Maplewood by going to Marks, Print Transcripts. Once a dialog window opens up, select Validation Statement radio button. Then you can produce Validation Statements, for example, by grade.

Semester one credits have been posted for all the students by this date and should be reflected on the Validation Statements. If you have any questions or concerns regarding semester one credits, please contact us.

Official transcripts:

While you can produce an unofficial transcript in the same dialog window as the Validation Statement, please continue to send official transcript requests to the Student Records Registrar Julia Tautuajuk. There is no change to this process.

Course corrections:

Course corrections will still go through the Student Records Registrar. There is no change to this process.
