The Texas Legislature will be wrapping up at the end of the month. We’ve been paying attention. We always pay attention, especially when it comes to Texas mandates. TxEIS is all about trusted mandate compliance. And so we’re on top of things. Questions? Let us know.
Save the date! The first Texas Computer Cooperative (TCC) user conference is now only seven months out (November 6 – 7, 2017). And not much beats November in South Texas. This is going to be a great conference to attend. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
The TCC is building a brighter future for schools in Texas every day. Contact us with your questions.
The Texas Computer Cooperative is known for its stellar software: iTCCS, TxEIS, CareerPortal and txSuite. But we also have excellent customer support. Twenty ESC’s throughout Texas means that we’ve got you covered. Go ahead, give us a call. You’ll be glad you did.
TBAC is in full swing and on Thursday, the technical consultants meet up. This is the nitty gritty stuff. There’s lots of sharing of information, once again, so that TxEIS runs as smoothly as you’ve come to expect it to. Collaboration is at the heart of our product, as are you. Let us know if you have any questions.
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.
There are some changes in the works for Summer PEIMS. The two big ones deal with the new calendar minutes and accountability measures (districts will now pick three that they will be rated on primarily). We’re ready for all of it so you can be too. We’re also here to answer any questions you might have. And don’t forget: the deadline for Summer PEIMS is June 22nd. It’s going to be a great summer!
The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) is in full swing for all local education agencies (LEAs). We’ve been working hard to make sure you have a smooth, seamless experience submitting your OCR data. Have a question? Let us know.
Every year TxEIS holds a week-long New Consultant Training session. It’s a crash course in the software. But it’s also an opportunity for consultants to get together. Because TxEIS is a collaborative effort. And you, our clients, reap the reward of this cooperative effort. TxEIS Knows Texas. We’re here to answer your questions — fully trained!
TxEIS makes sure you’re secure. One of the ways we do this is to get folks from the TCC TxEIS Data Center, iTCCS and ESC-20, as well as, of course, TxEIS, together quarterly to proactively discuss things like ransomeware and DDOS attacks, and how to prevent or deal with them. TxEIS has your best interest at heart. Call us and let us know what you’re concerned about.
The new, much anticipated Help has begun its roll-out. It’s currently available in Scheduling and Test Scores, but look for it in many more applications by this summer. Onward and upward. Let us know if you have questions.
