  • MiSiS Updates - July 12, 2017

    Posted by The MiSiS Team at 7/12/2017

    MiSiS Announcement:

    Auto Withdrawal

    Currently, a bug is preventing students from being auto-withdrawn.  The MiSiS team is working to resolve the issue.  As a workaround, the enrolling school may call the 2017-18 enrollment school to ask the school to No Show the student.  After the student has been processed as a No Show, the new school may enroll the student.

     

    No Show Process:

    1. Schools may now mark a student a No Show before school starts.  No Shows are processed every week night. Refer to the  MiSiS No Show job aid for directions: No Show Process
    2. The No Show Student Schedule Summary Report is now available on the Enrollment reports menu.  The report lists all students processed as a No Show student and the student’s schedule before the No Show process.  This report may be used by counselors to schedule students who re-enroll at the same school.
    3. For re-enrolling No Show students, the enrollment screen will now display the most recent student’s address and permit data. 

     

    The following items have been updated/fixed in MiSiS: 

     

    Enrollment

    • Birthdate validation has been improved.  Schools will not be able to enroll students with the same birthdate as entry date.  Also, students younger than four years old may only be enrolled in grade levels PK and Infant.
