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.
Did you know? TxEIS has moved to Agile. We’re using Jira Dev, which allows us to use a specific type of Agile. In our case, we’re using the Kanban framework. A Kanban board allows members of the group to visualize each piece of the software puzzle they’re working on. So they can tell where in the process something is — full transparency is key. What does this mean for you? Faster software iterations so you get working components you need quickly. Questions?
The Texas Computer Cooperative is pleased to announce that we are working with the Instructure team to build two-way integration with Canvas. With just a click of a button teachers will be able to send grades from Canvas to TxEIS. Together we are committed to creating the best experience for users across Texas.
Two-digit Attendance tracks are just around the corner. You’ll be able to use 00 – 99 for your tracks. And we’ll be zero padding all your track data so you don’t have to think twice about it. And not to worry; your TSDS PEIMS submissions for Summer and Extended Year will be a breeze, as usual (at least from a TxEIS standpoint!). Let us know if you have any questions about any of this.
You all know that the Texas Education Agency requires accountability and one of the big ones is college/career/military readiness (for Student Achievement). We can help with PGP/Graduation Plan. Easily keep track of how students are doing by checking areas like College Readiness. We’re always eager to hear from you.
Last week we talked about KG round-up and planning for the year. You’ll need to budget for those teachers. Position Management can help you forecast positions and see what happens when you change things around before you’re locked in. And when you find the best scenario, move those positions to the current year or next year payroll. Make sure you’re getting the right personnel. iTCCS and TxEIS offer complete Business and Student administrative software designed exclusively for Texas Schools. Let us know what you think.
The Texas Computer Cooperative (TCC) (iTCCS/TxEIS) partners with schools to register kindergarten students using Online Registration. These planning days help schools get an idea for the number of students they’ll have next year and that helps get the right number of teachers. We’ll talk about that a little more next week. Want to know more? Contact us.
txConnect Online Registration, fully integrated with the iTCCS and TxEIS Student systems, is the bee’s knees. Last year we did an overhaul of the entire system. This year it’s back and better than ever. So get your district set up and go paperless. Get your student registered online today. Want to know more? Learn more from Help or contact us.
The Texas Department of Agriculture recently mandated field changes to the Texas Unified Nutrition Programs System (TX-UNPS) Export file format in Registration. We’ve already gotten it all worked out, though, so nothing for you to worry about. You can trust that with TxEIS, you’ll be in compliance with ALL state and federal mandates. Contact us.
