The training sessions on SIS Cycles 2-7 are planned at all of the educational cooperative sites beginning August 30 through September 14. The schedule (attached to this memo) lists the training dates for each educational cooperative and the school districts to attend each session. For educational co-ops that do not list the districts to attend, all districts in that educational co-op area should attend on the specified date. All training sessions will begin at 9:00 a.m. and dismiss at approximately 3:30 p.m.

It is essential that the State Reporting SIS Coordinator, Financial System Administrator and/or Bookkeeper, and Student System Administrator from the district attend the training session. It is also strongly suggested that a person with an Arkansas Teacher or Administrator license with the authority to correct accreditation report information and knowledge of course/job codes, license codes, and grade levels, attend the training workshop beginning at 9:00 a.m. 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. However, due to limited space, please send no more than three persons per district to the training.

If there has been a change in SIS Coordinators (Cycle 2-7) within the district, please fill in and submit a new SIS Coordinator form. The form is located on the APSCN website: On the home page click on the 'APSCN' drop-down menu and select 'FORMS.' Then select the SIS Coordinator form. This form is to be completed and returned ONLY if the SIS Coordinator for the district HAS CHANGED. If the form must be returned, fax it to the attention of Bobby Downum, 501-682-5035. Please DO NOT submit another form if one was sent in recently or if the information has not changed.

Please make certain the proper representatives attend the training, as it will greatly benefit the district. It will facilitate the electronic reporting process and provide the proper procedures for submitting error free reports.
