Once again the TxEIS Student Advisory Council (TSAC) meeting has concluded. Not only was it a knowledge sharing success, as usual, but it was a great chance for everyone to catch up. Communication is important to us here at the Texas Computer Cooperative so we value those open lines. And it means that you get the best support in Texas. TxEIS knows Texas.
TxEIS and txGradebook offer a variety of grading possibilities to accommodate multiple grading philosophies. There is, of course, the traditional method of grading available, but also standards-based and skills-based (for kindergarten) grading available. We know that you have unique needs, just like you have unique students. TxEIS is here to make sure you get what you need. Questions?
Coming this spring, a brand new TSDS PEIMS application. While you won’t notice much of a difference on the face of it, we want you to know that we’ve been working hard under the hood to make sure it purrs through all your PEIMS and Dashboard drives. You can count on us to make sure you’re always in compliance with state mandates — all at no cost to you. Questions?
It’s not the most glamorous topic, but it’s one that we’d be at a loss without. Warehouse. Most of us probably don’t think about that warehouse all that much, but without it, we wouldn’t get the things we need. And with TxEIS, that building chock-full of things, becomes a tightly integrated, organized machine. The Warehouse application allows you to find inventory; it’s got PO and Requisition interfaces; it allows you to fill back orders. So maybe it’s not glamorous, but it’s a workhorse. We want to hear from you!
TxEIS has a hosted environment that offers lots of benefits. One of them is document attachment. That’s right, upload, download and view documents for students and business right in TxEIS. At the TCC TxEIS Data Centers, your life just got a whole lot easier. More benefits to come. You can always contact us with any questions, too.
Last week we told you about the stats you can get about students and parents with parent and student portal accounts. This week, we’re letting you know that you can also see statistics for forms. Once you’re logged in as an administrator, you’ll be able to get information about the number of students who have current-year acceptance records, how many have registration information that hasn’t changed or how many have pending changes. You can even look up information about a specific student from this page. Knowledge is power. TxEIS is empowerment. Contact us with your questions.
Every year the Texas Computer Cooperative is part of a voluntary ESC-20 center-wide SOC 2 (Service Organization Controls) certification. This third-party security audit created by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) measures an organizations ability to control its information, an obviously very important part of the TCC TxEIS Data Center (check out the first of several posts about our fantastic Data Centers). You’ll be glad to know that we passed. Again. If it’s important to you — and security always is — it’s important to us. Questions?
Did you know that txConnect has statistics? When you log in as an administrator you can see things like how many students have accounts with txSuite, the total number of users district-wide, or even the number of active users since a date that you specify. If you have district access, you can drill down to specific campuses to see which ones are doing a good job getting parents and students signed up for accounts. Engagement is a measure of success. TxEIS leads the way. Call us with your questions.
