Demo Site update

I've updated the demonstration sites with students (18 students per grade K-12) and staff (23?). Use one of the staff userids and passwords to log into the teacher demo site. On admin site, go to Start/End of Year tab, and look at Staff Management section, Edit/Delete to get the user and password. Logo updated to distribution version. I'll try to write some scripting to add courses and course enrollments, if I get a chance.

New 8.3 Release

Development of OA has continued 'under the covers' for quite some time without a new release, since I was busy writing updates and improvements for many schools under contract. I also didn't receive ANY feedback from downloaders, other than from a few reliable and supportive testers! (Thank you Michael and friends). This release includes many fixes, updates and new features (principal walkthrough, staff absence tracking, etc, etc.) I'm just about done a new school level IEP system but it's not included in this release. The demo site has been updated to this release version. A lot has happened on the teacher site, as well.

Monday, December 1st

I'm now entering the UAT (User Acceptance Testing) for the Pasi Code for Alberta Education with the associated school (Frog Lake School (CNCS)). Simple development for the Fontis and Pinnell reading system is now complete. Also working on multi-year recall of student marks and attendance (via running extra databases on remote secondary server). This should be done shortly, also. Conformance testing with Alberta Education for School and School Enrollment will likely take a month or so. FYI.

Transcript Report Update

I've rewritten the transcript report to add selects for next page checking and also One Student per File options as found in the report card for printing and duplexing (double sided), as well as data backup usage (ie. just save the file and you've got a permanent copy).

Work Continues

I'm back at work in the 'mushroom' building tomorrow, getting ready for fall for all of the TSEC schools, and also will work on a full 8.2 release. I've been working part time on finishing the Alberta Ed 'millstone of the albatross' code for their PASI system and am doing well. I've created a new enrollment system for them, which will eventually migrate into the main OA code base.
