    MiSiS Announcements


    Summer School

    Mass Summer School Enrollment screen has been enhanced. Users are able to add and delete summer school enrollments and course requests for multiple students at various times. User can add one request and come back later to add up to three more. The screen also has new appearance and includes some of the new user experience features which will be included in other MiSIS screens in the coming months.



    The following items have been updated/fixed in MiSiS:


    • The default minutes will automatically display for newly created sections at Continuation Schools.
    • The Attendance Referral Report is no longer counting tardies with office tardy reason codes as absent at secondary schools.



    • The Withdrawal Screen has been modified as follows:
      • Users may no longer enter a future withdrawal date.
      • A new withdrawal reason code has been added “Did Not Meet Graduation Requirements”. This reason code is used for 12th grade students who do not meet graduation requirements.
      • Validation was added to selected combinations of Withdrawal Code and Withdrawal Reason:
        • § L7 with Reason Code Diploma (90) may only be selected for students without a prior L7 and 90 who are On Track to Graduate.
        • § L7 with Reason Code Special Ed Certificate of Completion (92) may only be selected for students with an active IEP and without a prior L7 -92 withdrawal.

    • School users can now promote/demote students using Grade Level Change on the Enrollment History screen. Users will no longer receive an error message.



    • The Section Attributes Report now displays all selected courses and the attributes associated to those courses. This report also contains a sub-report that drills down to the student level so the user can determine is the student is in the proper class or if the section attribute needs to be updated to reflect the students in that class. This report will also assist schools in identifying sections that call for the State Required English Learner Service attribute.
    • The section capacity field in Sections Editor was corrected to respect the total number of students in the class.
    • Course titles were corrected for specific schools and students.


    Summer School

    • A new user role, “ESY District Admin”, has been added for Central Office staff.
