We will re-activate all Parent Portal options on July 30, 2021, including Schedule views.
If you would like Paraprofessionals to be included in rostering please attach them to sections as Section Staff and State Exclude them under Role.
We invite you to visit our Scheduling Resources website to access Help materials and online training links.
Roster Copy/Roster Setup Reactivation
In order to assist schools with all of the scheduling requirements/ changes, and due to the number of personnel changes of school administrators, we have determined that ALL users must request by email to their SIS Specialist to have their (sched_) access extended. Upon that request, user’s will receive access to the below tools through 8/20/2021. That access will include:
Roster Batch Edit
*All school users will lose this updated access on 8/20/2021
Course State Code Override
As a reminder, we are no longer asking that separate rosters be created for teachers providing several different delivery models in one classroom. To allow for teachers to have one roster with all of the students on it, we will be using the Course State Code Override field on the Roster Batch Edit screen.
The % Fully Scheduled dashboard has been updated to include intervention requirements
All Elementary schools have a period titled TARGET to which the 00.Enrich or 00.Interv numbers should be scheduled for ALL student.
Middle schools chose to either add a TARGET period and schedule ALL students into a 00.Enrich or 00.Interv number, or to serve students requiring Intervention during the Connections block
High schools should schedule as normal, placing the students requiring intervention into support classes for the current scheduled ELA and/or Math class
For any questions please reach out to Deanna Rogers in the Office or Student Services.
Reporting Periods/Report Card Dates
We are still awaiting the final report card dates from Governance and Police office. Once we have those dates, we will post the reporting period to our website.
If a student is not Present for the first 10 days of school, they should be No-Showed as of the first day of school. A student cannot be absent before they are present, so please make sure to update start dates as students attend.
Messaging through IC after the Rollover
After the rollover on July 12, 2021, no students will be considered active until the first day of school. During this time it will be necessary to uncheck the ‘Message Only Active Students’ filter when using the Messaging features in Infinite Campus.
Each school is assigned to a Student Information Specialist (SIS) who is the main point of contact for all Infinite Campus questions. This includes training needs, state reporting errors, scheduling issues, etc… Please submit all questions and/or requests for assistance through email or a Nimbus support ticket please go to https://www.atlantapublicschools.us/support.
Access to Infinite Campus
Teachers who are new to APS will automatically become available in the teacher dropdown and have Infinite Campus accounts created once they are entered into the HR system and fully processed by Records Management. However, they may not be able to access the system until their official start date. Transferring teachers will automatically become available in the teacher dropdown at the new school once the transfer entered into the HR system and processed, however, access is not automatically transferred.
