eSchool - Developing a School of Choice Lottery System in eSchoolPLUS LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Our district had an elaborate, but intensely manual, process for selecting students for academies and academic programs.  At the time, vendor didn’t offer all the features we needed, such as allowing students to apply for multiple programs of choice within the same building, requiring prerequisites such as recommendation letters, prioritizing student placement based on demographic or academic considerations, as well as permitting administrators to monitor applications and placements in real time. 

 We realized that with a little creativity and effort, we could actually do all of that using products we already owned, employing skills we already had.  This session will cover high-level aspects of how we created this system by integrating features of Home Access Center, District Defined screens, our reporting tool (Microsoft SSRS), SQL functions and stored procedures, and our mass messaging system.  We will also discuss other ways these technologies and concepts might be used at your district to solve problems.  

 For those interested in a deeper dive on how to use SSRS in combination with stored procedures, we encourage you to also attend the SNUG session entitled eSchoolPLUS SSRS Advanced Reporting.
