STATEWIDE INFORMATION SYSTEM TRAINING SCHEDULE
CYCLES 2 THROUGH 7
The SIS (State Information System) Cycle 2 – 7 training is scheduled to be held separately from Cycle 1 training. The information for Cycle 1 training is listed in Director’s Memo # DIR-03-050.
The training sessions on SIS Cycles 2-7 are planned at all of the educational cooperative sites beginning August 27 through September 12. The schedule (attached below) lists the training dates for each Coop and the school districts to attend each session. All training sessions will begin at 9:00 a.m. and dismiss at approximately 2:30 p.m.
It is essential that the State Reporting Coordinator, Financial System Administrator and/or Bookkeeper, LEA Supervisor, and Student System Administrator from the district attend the training session. In some school districts one staff member may cover more than one of these areas of responsibility, and in that case, someone else who would benefit from the training may attend. Due to limited space, please send no more than four persons to the training.
Also attached to this memo is a Statewide Information System (SIS) Coordinator Application Form. This form is to be completed and returned ONLY if the SIS Coordinator for the district HAS CHANGED. If the form should be returned, fax it to the attention of Tinika Ricks, APSCN SIS Programming, 501-682-5035. DO NOT submit another form if one was sent in recently and the information has not changed.
Make certain the proper representatives attend the training, as it will greatly benefit the school district. It will facilitate the electronic reporting process and provide the proper procedures for submitting error free reports.
