Please use your specific SIS form in My Data to update the relevant information.
Please provide calendar data for the new year using the instructions available here. If your attendance codes or funding periods have changes, please provide updated information using the instructions available here. Finally, you’ll need to ensure you have updated the school year so that you are loading file data for the new 2022-23 year into the “Current” folder on your SFTP site.
Please download the Tyler Terms and Holidays.xlsx file and upload to the “Other Data” form on My Data. The only Term Type values our connector can handle are “Year”, “Semester”, “Quarter”, and “Marking Period”. Please use only these values. You must at least include a “Year” type and that Term Name must be “SY”. Sample data are included in the file.
Please see our Help Center article for the list of default periods and template for updating testing windows for certain assessments. Upload the completed template to My Data. Please reach out to Schoolzilla Support if you have questions.
*If you uploaded custom assessment windows for 21-22, we have rolled those dates forward one year. Please reach out to Schoolzilla Support if you’d like to make adjustments.
If you have state assessment data, we can support the official file format. Don’t see an option for 21-22 results in the drop down My Data? You are likely the first one from your state to submit results! Please use the “Other Data” form on My Data to upload the state test result file(s) and notify Schoolzilla Support.
Please make sure that new assessments have scopes and subject areas assigned. Schoolzilla Enterprise users – please be sure to assign scopes if relevant for your uses.
Please reach out to Schoolzilla Support when your cycle windows have been updated for the new school year in STEP Tool.
Review data from the previous year at the district and school level to identify bright spots and areas in need of attention in the new school year.
Review metrics related to your district’s strategic plan or school improvement plans and identify gaps that need to be closed.
Filter for students with behavior, academic, or attendance issues from the previous year and create and share one or more student intervention groups with school leaders and teachers so they know which students may need support at the beginning of the year.
Use these resources to help make sure school leaders and teachers have the data they need to support their students in the new school year.
