Progress Report Day!

For many teachers Progress Report Day is coming up! To help remind you of how easy it is to mark the Progress Period closed in PCG, we created a little video for you to watch…take a look and let us know if you have any questions:

Although not covered in the video, you can also enter comments in the Comment tab from the Finalized Grade screen.


Pre-K and Kindergarten Teachers

For all of our Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers, you now have the ability to enter your progress report data in PCG as well! Check out the video below to see how you can enter that data:

But what if you are following these directions and the comments aren’t saving?! You probably have Compatibility Mode turned on in Internet Explorer and need to turn it off! Don’t know how to do that? Well, check out this post – It covers everything you need to know!

Countdown to LCISD’s D(MA) Day

It is creeping up…silently lurking…always in the back of our mind but never has it seemed so important.  Your palms are sweaty.  You have developed a nervous twitch.  You need to know…are you OK or is it a time of desperation?  It is…DMA DAY!

The DMA Day is fast approaching for our district.  Teachers must have their allotted hours of off-contract staff development completed.  Wondering if you have enough hours?  There is a fast, easy way for you to check.  Check out this video to see how!

If you are looking for some instructions written out, check out the details below.

Log into ASCEND from the PCG Main Menu.  From the  ASCEND home screen, scroll down to the area labeled “My Courses” and click on the button “View My Transcript.”

Select the "My Transcript" button

A new window will open.  You will see a list of all the staff development sessions you have attended.  Included in the information are the number of CEU (continuing education) hours you receive for each session as well as your DMA hours that have been credited.

Your LCISD Transcript

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see your total hours for this DMA year (2011).

Your Total DMA Hours

You should allow 1-2 weeks for your DMA hours to appear after you have completed your session and taken the survey.  In the near future, if you do not complete the survey, hours will not be awarded.  To learn how to access and complete your staff development survey, click here.

If you have any questions concerning your DMA hours, please contact the staff development office at 832.223.0134 .  They will be happy to assist you!

Sorting the Semesters

Moving into a new semester at school can be so refreshing! New start for the students, new start for you…really, a new start for the entire school! Except for one thing…D2SC! D2 holds on to your first semester gradebooks, mixing them with your new second semester gradebooks, making it a little difficult to make sure you are selecting the right option when going to put in grades!

While there is a very good reason D2 holds on to your first semester gradebooks (you might need to revisit them, after all!), it can still be a bit of a pain to have to wade through all of those gradebooks and only select the second semester ones. Fortunately, there is a very simple process you can to do to move your second semester gradebooks to be all by themselves! Check out the video below for more info:

Pretty nice tip, huh? This works for any menu item in D2SC, so you can actually put a number of different options in the “My D2SC” menu section. Happy grading and please let us know if you have any questions!


D2SC has a new look!

The theme of the summer here inside LCISD has definitely been change and D2SC hasn’t been left out of the mix!

We are excited to announce a few cosmetic and functional changes inside D2SC that have made it easier to use and nicer to look at! We will be offering training at the beginning of the school year showing you all the great changes that have been done to D2SC and showing you how it’s going to make your life so much easier, but we wanted to show you this little promo video of the basics that you can see and play with now!

We know these changes are going to save you time each and every day and we can’t wait to show you more! Hope you are having a great summer and check back soon to check out some more updates on the summer’s events!
