Global view: Tool for gathering data Basis for distribution of funds to districts Several components: Student & Staff Tool for comparing effectiveness of district to other districts Tool for informing public about each district (District and individual report cards) Not just a dirty four letter word Entire district is responsible for the accuracy in EMIS reporting, inclusive of payroll personnel. If you remember the Global view you then understand what an important role payroll plays in EMIS reporting. Data collection method has recently changed Data for EMIS reporting is now pulled DIRECTLY from USPS (state software) Non-state software users have had to update the file they submit to the state How districts are being funded has changed and increased the information that now needs to be collected and reported Can no longer ignore EMIS fields/elements to be reported Paychecks can be created without all the EMIS information in, but eventually all Staff EMIS information must be reported FROM the payroll file……how does info get into the file? Lack of EMIS knowledge/input of the payroll personnel is no longer a good option for the district – the payroll job is changing Communication is the key DO not make assumptions ◦ Replacement of personnel has same info as previous employee ◦ ASK questions and seek clarification Now that you are aware of the importance of the information – make a plan/procedure Incorporate any viable tools available Keep your superiors informed of missing data EMIS manual Chapter 3 in your possession Employee Information Sheet District EMIS Responsibilities Worksheet ODE EMIS Manual Found at: ODE>Data>EMIS>Documentation Which Staff Do I Report?
