Menu ItemTab or Sub-MenuSubjectDescription
ReportsAssessment Score ReportA new export option is available for OAKS, SBAC, and all tests on the Other Assessments tab. The export is for a single test type, and you can add additional filters for grade, cohort, date range, and assessment grade. For large schools, we recommend running this report in ‘batch’ mode. (WHD14343)/160226/New
ReportsPrimary Review Section HDHS requires this new statistical form as part of the final Primary Review. This report gives shot summary and non-medical exemption summary for all grades, not just KG and Grade 7. (WHD16646)/160226/New
ReportsPrimary Review Exemption ReportThis report uses the summary totals from Form H to calculate shot and exemption percentage rates by school. This form may be run at any time of year by entering a specific date. During the Primary Review process, it will retain the original date from Form A, so the totals reflect the same student counts used for the Primary Review process. After your final Primary Review is complete, you can change the date as needed. (WHD15240)/160226/New
My StudentsMain PageWe added a DBN filter field to My Students. Use this field to make a direct hit on a student. This page defaults to ‘Enrolled’ students; if you search by a DBN you may want to change the Status filter to blank to search all students. (WHD16575)/160226/Enhancement
ReportsContact Mailing Cross Reference ReportWe added a Parent/Guardian filter to this report. This allows you to run a report to match Mailing Labels by Parent Name, either Lives With or Non-Lives With. (WHD13602)/160226/Enhancement
Staff SecurityStaff DetailWe added Phone # and Extension to the staff detail page. This allows you to enter individual contact numbers which will show on the Staff Directory export and the School Profile Personnel export. (WHD14249)/160226/Enhancement
My StudentsMain PageWe temporarily removed the totals [=] button from the screen to improve response time. Watch for it to return in a future build./160226/Fixes
My StudentsAdditional Programs tabWe changed the sort order of the screen display. Program enrollments for a student will display by year, date range, and program type order. This makes it easier to identify all programs a student is participating in by year. (WHD15206)/160226/Fixes
My StudentsEnrollment History tab(Phase 2) We previously separated the End and Withdrawal dates into separate columns on the enrollment history tab. The Withdraw date is now updated to show the Monday-Friday date which is reported to ODE. Example: A student who last attends on Friday, (End) 2/19/2016, will show a Withdraw Date of Monday, 2/22/2016, instead of the Saturday date which previously showed. (WHD15988)/160226/Fixes
My StudentsOther Assessments tabWe removed the writing scale score notation (2-12 and 1-36). The field is not year specific and will accept values up to 36. (WHD14769)/160226/Fixes
My StudentsState Assessments tabWe added Smarter Balance ELA and Math to the Assessment dropdown on the Transfer entry screen. This now allows you to enter SBAC scores manually for students transferring in from a non-LBL WebSIS district. We are still working on an automated process to pull scores from ODE for transfer students. (WHD14660)/160226/Fixes
ProcessesConvert Incomplete to FailureThe process was presenting a server error. We fixed the problem and it is running successfully. You must select a grade interval then the [Submit] button will run a process that converts in I-incomplete grades to F-failure grades for the specified interval. It only changes grades in WebSIS. It does not change grades in Pinnacle. (WHD16720)/160226/Fixes
ReportsCredit Deficiency ReportThe report was originally designed for active students so it was not working after students withdrew in June. We changed it so that it will always include WC withdrawn students. This also allows you to run the report for previous environment years. (WHD9497)/160226/Fixes
ReportsStudent Variable ExportResident and Attending School fields were showing the 3-digit LBL number. We changed the description to School# and added additional field selections for Resident and Attending School names. (WHD14956)/160226/Fixes
ReportsStudent Variable ExportWe corrected the saved templates to hold existing field values when you select additional fields from the same category. If you want to remove one or more fields from an existing template, use the trashcan [delete] icon. (WHD14647)/160226/Fixes
State AssessmentUpload Data FileThe USID upload has been incorrectly populating TSPC numbers for non-certified staff if their last name matched a certified staff person immediately preceding them in the staff file. We have corrected the import process. RECOMMENDATION: Please run a USID production download from ODE and import it into WebSIS. The new upload will remove/blank incorrect TSPC numbers for non-certified staff who have been improperly assigned from earlier uploads. (WHD16623)/160226/Fixes
Student InformationTeacher/Advisor PageThe Next page link was jumping 2 pages instead of 1. Advisor changes were not always saving properly. We fixed a code issue and the screen is paging and saving properly now. (WHD15670)/160226/Fixes
Maintain TablesEssential Skills Cut ScoresThis new table shows the minimum cut score of various types of tests available for HS Essential Skills. This table will allow LBL to begin assessing third party tests such as ACT, SAT, and PSAT for completion of ES. SBAC scores will always take priority and will override a third party test if a passing score is obtained. (WHD13608)/160203/New
Maintain TablesCourse CatalogWe added the Low/High curriculum grade fields to the course catalog export. This information is maintained in the SILK district course catalog on the miscellaneous tab. (WHD15838)/160203/Enhancement
My StudentsEnrollment History tabPhase 1 – We separated the End/Withdraw dates into separate columns and reordered the program display. The BSF-Basic Funding record will display with associated program enrollments in the same date range showing directly under the BSF record. A future build (Phase 2) will change the Withdraw dates to reflect only Monday-Friday dates associated with ODE reporting. (WHD14893)/160203/Enhancement
ReportsAthletic Eligibility ReportWe added 3 additional filters options to the ‘Show Students’ dropdown. You can select students with ‘Less than 3, 4, or 5’ academic subjects. NOTE: An academic subject is any course identified as earning credit, receiving grades, and printing on a transcript. (WHD6794)/160203/Enhancement
ReportsSBAC/OAKS Area Summary ReportWe added Smarter Balanced scores and change the name of the OAKS Area Summary report to include SBAC information. This report just shows cut scores. It does not include level information. SBAC scores are 4-digit. OAKS scores are 3-digit. (WHD13606)/160203/Enhancement
State ReportingDistrict ReportingLow/High curriculum grade information entered in the SILK course catalog now shows on the IUID, Staff Assignment, and Class Roster downloads. (WHD15238)/160203/Enhancement
Enroll StudentEnrollment tabWe found that schools could enroll students who were already actively enrolled at an LTCT facility creating overlapping dates. While this did not cause errors in ADM reporting, we corrected the screen to edit LTCT students the same as regular students. (WHD16018)/160203/Fixes
Maintain TablesBehavior Incident/Response TablesWe changed the Behavior code tables to display all codes alphabetically instead of by Global/District/School order. This change re-ordered how the codes display in the dropdown on the entry screen. You can quickly identify if you have duplicate descriptions active in the table. Please ‘End Date’ school or district codes that already exist at the Global level. (WHD15551)/160203/Fixes
My StudentsAttendance tabKG students marked absent for half-day were still showing 1.0 in the far right St. Rpt. Absence column. The report from the tab was also showing a full-day state reported absence even though detail showed half-day. This was a screen display issue only; attendance was reported correctly to ODE. The screen now shows .5/1.0 absences for regular, full-time KG students. (WHD15708)/160203/Fixes
My StudentsDemographic tabWe updated the list of Native American Tribes in the dropdown to align with ODE changes. (WHD15287)/160203/Fixes
ReportsBehavior Reported by SummaryWe removed the sort option of Student Name. This is not a student level report. Summary information can be sorted by Staff Name or by high/low incident count. (WHD14730)/160203/Fixes
ReportsClass Schedule Load ReportWe changed a yearend process to retain the final class count for teacher/courses in WebSIS. This allows you to run the Class Schedule Load Report for previous years if you need information on how many students were schedule into specific classes. NOTE: Year 1314 does not have course counts available, but 1415 counts show. (WHD13411)/160203/Fixes
ReportsImmunization Primary Review - BCD formStudents marked as ‘Exclude from Primary Review’ were included on the BCD detail form. The report is correctly excluding the students now. (WHD15543)/160203/Fixes
ReportsSBAC/OAKS Area Summary ReportScience scores are once again showing in the correct column. (WHD15603)/160203/Fixes
ReportsStudent Locator ReportWe added an ‘as of’ date field to the intermediate parameter screen used from the student list pages such as Quick Groups and Drilldowns. This allows you to request schedules for either a past or future date. The date field corrected problems with ‘no data’ when crossing terms. (WHD15818)/160203/Fixes
State AssessmentEssential Skills PageScreen filters on the ES page are holding their values when you leave the screen using the [Detail] or [Scores] buttons to access individual student detail. When you click the [back to list] button from the Essential Skills tab or State Assessment tab, you will return to the ES page with the original filter information. NOTE: If you selected ‘Not Met’ as a filter and you enter data on a student tab that completes the requirement, when you return to the ES page the student will be removed from the list of students. (WHD15444)/160203/Fixes

We will continue to show all the available uploads and worksheets on the State Reporting screen, but the [Submit] button will only be active (blue) for reports the person is authorized to submit. The recommended authorization for these options is either ‘All’ or ‘None’. Read only doesn’t apply and will leave the option active with All rights. (WHD1009)/151124/Enhancement
Enrollment TotalsAlternative EducationThe [Detail] button for a specific program now shows the student information for the selected program. Previously, all students/all programs were presented no matter what program was selected. (WHD13782)/151124/Fixes
My StudentsAdditional ProgramsWe removed the 0.0/0.5 FTE requirements for College Coursework and Expanded Options. You can now add these programs to students enrolled as 1.0 FTE. This allows tracking of hybrid students who are taking some regular HS classes and some college classes. These program enrollments will only report college credits to ODE if the student is 0.0 FTE. Student enrolled for membership (.5 or 1.0) will report the membership record only. (WHD13905)/151124/Fixes

We have corrected the screen to show the current Legal Name information. (WH11048)/151023/Fixes
Enrollment TotalsProgram Tabs - District LevelWe changed the Basic Funding tab to not pre-load all school totals when you first access the screen. This allows quicker access to the other program tabs, or allows you to filter to a school or prior year before beginning the load process.

State AssessmentPerformance RegistrationA couple of districts reported that their Work Samples did not copy over from 1415. The problem was created by someone registering a sample in a future year (1516) instead of the current 1415 environment. We changed the registration screen to not allow entry in a future year. (WHD12711)/151023/Fixes
State ReportingADM Cumulative ReportDistricts who sent their First Period ADM report prior to October 20th, had the LEPFg field set to Y-yes for active and exited students. This was due to conversion issues and new coding. We have changed the ADM collection to set the indicator flag for students with category codes 1A-1E only. (WHD13309)/151023/Fixes
State ReportingADM Cumulative ReportThe District Special Ed flag (column BZ-DistSpEdProgFg) did not get set properly on the First Period ADM for students with Federal Placement codes for 32-41.
