STATEWIDE INFORMATION SYSTEM (SIS) TRAINING SCHEDULE
CYCLES 2 THROUGH 9
The training sessions on SIS Cycles 2-9 are planned at all of the educational cooperative sites beginning August 29 through September 12. The schedule (attached to this memo) lists the training dates for each educational cooperative, and where applicable, the school districts to attend the session. For educational coops that do not list the districts to attend, all districts in that educational coop 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 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 (i.e. curriculum coordinator, principal) 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 the areas of responsibility. 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.
Also attached to this memo is a Statewide Information System (SIS) Coordinators Application 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.
