Copy Calendar Enhancement

Coming Soon: more options are coming to the Copy Calendar page. You’ll be able to add a new track from the page, tailor what information is copied from one calendar to the other so you get exactly what you need, and copy with more freedom (that means calendars don’t have to have the same calendar minutes anymore). We’re working hard to make your hard work a little easier. Let us know if you have any questions.

Attendance Minutes

This is a big change to how your instruction time is calculated. We told you about it a couple of months ago. It’s here now. For more information about what changes there are, check out this flyer.

In short, Minimum Daily Minutes and Shortened Minimum Daily Minutes fields were added to for TEA-defined minutes of instruction per day. Daily Minutes and Shortened Daily Minutes were added for LEA-defined minutes, which can be more but not less than the TEA-defined minutes. Plus four new Day Type Selections were added to the campus calendar.

For more detailed information, click on the link for the flyer above, or contact your local ESC.

As you may know, House Bill 2610, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature, made changes to Texas Education Code ยง25.081 requiring a minimum number of minutes of instruction (75,600) instead of days (180) per year. Not to worry, though, because TxEIS has the Attendance calendar looking good. You’ll have it in your hands in no time. Remember that with TxEIS, you’re always in compliance with federal and state mandates. Have a question about any of this? Let us know.
