ACHIEVEMENT IN MONTANA (AIM)

Reminders

AIM Average Daily Attendance (ADA) Collection Due June 30th. A few districts have yet to complete their ADA reporting. The ADA Collection can be entered as soon as school is out! ADA is required for all students enrolled with Service Types of P: Primary or S: Partial at any time during the 16-17 school year. For each student, districts must calculate the number of days enrolled and the number of days present and enter the data into AIM/Infinite Campus. Information may be entered into each student's enrollment record via upload or direct entry, or it can be automatically calculated and populated using students' schedules and attendance records (this last option is only available for those districts who use Infinite Campus to keep daily attendance).  Please refer to the ADA Collection User Guide for specific instructions.

End of Year Graduate Data Verification. Please verify that you've completed your end of year graduation data with the following state published ad hoc reports:

» student ALL Cohort Missing Date First Entered 9th Grade
» student EOY Graduates Missing Diploma Information
» student EOY Graduates NOT Grade 12
» student EOY Missing End Date or Status

Summer Dropouts (Grades 7-12). For students who were in grade levels 7-12 in the 2016-17 school year who dropped out over the summer, please do NOT change the end status on the 2016-17 enrollment record. Please add a one day enrollment for the 2017-18 school year with a dropout end status. 

LEP is now EL

In accordance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), on August 4, 2017, an update to Infinite Campus will change all references to LEP (Limited English Proficiency) to EL (English Learner). However, if a district has created a custom flag and named it LEP, they will have to manually change the name of that flag to EL in order to comply with ESSA. 

The steps to change the custom flag in Infinite Campus are as follows:

>Index
>Program Admin
>Flags
>Select the LEP flag and change the name to EL
>click Save
