ACHIEVEMENT IN MONTANA (AIM)

Current Collection Due Friday, February 10th

2/6/17-2/10/17 Spring Count of Enrollment and Aggregate Hours - This collection absolutely ends February 10, 2017. The Spring Enrollment Count Collection is used to collect the Aggregate Hours of Instruction for all students enrolled on the spring count date (the first Monday in February). Student data from AIM will then be imported by the districts to the MAEFAIRS system to determine the count of students to be used in the calculation of Average Number of Belonging (ANB), which is used for school funding. The spring enrollment data must be accurate for enrollments as of February 6, 2017. If there are no classes held on that date, use the next regularly scheduled school day. For further guidance, please see the Spring Count User Guide and the AIM & MAEFAIRs User Guide.

Reminders and Tips

Mid-Year Grade Level Changes: If the school district's policy is to change student Grade Levels at semester (based on the number of credits earned), make those changes in AIM to ensure the students are properly coded for CRT testing.  End the student’s current enrollment as of the last day of the first semester, using End Status 105: Change in grade level during regular school year. Create a new enrollment with the new Grade Level as of the first day of the second semester using Start Status 02: Continued enrollment same school, no interruption. Districts may use the File Upload method for Grade Level changes
