It is an electronic system that: • Creates the schedule of classes; • Provides transcripts; • Manages the financial aid process; • Links faculty assignments to the courses they teach; • Records grades; • Calculates a student’s GPA; • Serves as a data source for MIS, accreditation, AtD, SLO ; • Manages student fees; • And much more CURRENT STATUS: PHASES OF THE PROJECT • • • • • Discovery (Complete) Configuration(In-progress) Testing Training Go-live CURRENT STATUS: FIT GAP ANALYSIS SESSIONS February 19 through April 23, 2013 40 Sessions 27 Departments & 150 Unduplicated Employees CURRENT STATUS: COMMUNICATION PLAN • Monthly Newsletters • SharePoint Collaboration hosted on district server • On-going in-person presentation at the various district committees • College Roadshows ORIGINAL DEPLOYMENT OPTIONS • RFP proposed plan was to use two beta campuses • Pierce College • Valley College • In year two , the SIS will be deployed at the remaining 7 colleges At the conclusion of the Discovery Phase of the Project , the management team revisited the deployment plan and now is considering a pilot by module roll-out instead.
