  • MiSiS Updates - November 30, 2016

    MiSiS Announcements


    Certify Data Tool

    There was a technical issue this morning that prevented the Certify data tool to email notifications to end users. We are investigating the issue. You may still access today’s scorecards by logging in directly to Certify at: https://datatool.lausd.net.

    You will be receiving Certify email notifications on Thursday, December 1st only for this week.

    Student Photos

    One of the most commonly asked questions from MiSiS users has been “When are the student photos coming?” Beginning today, approximately 10 schools will see student photos in MiSiS as part of a pilot program. The schools are using MiSiS as usual in order to make sure there are no issues caused by the addition of the photos. Once the pilot has been completed, all schools will have the chance to have student photos in MiSiS. The goal is for all schools to have student photos loaded into MiSiS during the second semester.



    The following items have been fixed or updated in MiSiS:


    • Data fixes were made for specific schools.



    • The Concurrent Term Editor Auto Populate button will list all mappings on the first click.
    • The Sections Editor has been updated so that users can only edit the off-site section’s student enrollment for those who belong to the same school.
    • In Sections Editor, under the Section Details for “teacher”, the teacher’s employee number has been added to help distinguish employees (this change will also reflect in Section Assignments).
    • The Sections Editor group drop down menu now displays all sections and students related to that group.
    • The following changes were made in the Walk In tab:
      • The “Hide Reviewed Schedules” icon “!” is now in black color.

    • The Master Absence Report no longer displays students’ absences from previous schools of attendance.



    • The Athletic Report parameters have been modified as follows:
      • Local District – Defaults to the Local District the user has access to. If a user’s access is to all Local Districts, the user must select the desired LD.
      • School Year – Defaults to the current year, with the option of selecting the previous school year.
      • Campus – Defaults to the campus the user has access to. If a user’s access is to all campuses, the user must select the desired campus.
      • Sports Season(s) – Select the desired season, this will cascade the Athletic Group(s).
      • Athletic Group(s) – Select the desired group, this will cascade the Group Name(s).
      • Group Name(s) – Select the desired group.
      • GPA Eligibility – Select the desired GPA Eligibility. This parameter includes values comprising a term name and a date, which is five days post the previous school term, as of the selected school year. This date will also be treated as the selected effective date to retrieve GPA in the report body. For all other report body elements, the effective date used is July 1st of the selected school year.
      • Eligibility Date – Select the desired date which falls within the term selected in the GPA Eligibility parameter. If a date outside of the term is selected, an error message will display to indicate the selected date is outside the range associated with the selected eligibility term and a list of dates will appear for selection.
