CMSD82 Memo to All Employees re MyEducationBC Implementation Update – August 21, 2015

 

As previously shared with all staff, MyEducationBC will go live on Monday morning, August 24, 2015.  This means we will be operating in the school district’s “live data” and no longer within a test environment.

On Monday morning the CMSD82 Implementation Team for MyEducation BC will be engaged in support sessions with Fujitsu to accomplish post-conversion tasks. These tasks will involve initializing calendars, creating user accounts for staff, assigning bell schedules, assigning homerooms and assigning calendars to students, etc.

It is the goal of CMSD82 Implementation Team to activate as many staff as quickly as possible in MyEducationBC. Priority activation may be given to Resource Teachers. Please do not assume you will receive a username and password as early as Monday, August 24. The Implementation Team will be providing usernames and passwords as soon as possible.

For your information, please find a few points related to usernames and passwords:

  • Your username name will consist of your first initial/last name.
  • The password will be generic until the first time you log in and change your password.
  • Please ensure that you include your email address in the initial change screen; this will enable the “forgot my password” functionality should you ever need it.
  • Inclusion of phone numbers, addresses, etc. of staff is entirely up to the individual staff members. Level One support personnel will not be entering personal/private information of any staff members.
  • Confirmation of your username and password will come from your School Principal as soon as they are complete.

  • Sept. 3, 2015 – Clerical In-Service, Time and Location TBC

CMSD82 Memo to All Employees re MyEducationBC Implementation – May 21, 2015  (PDF Format)

 

Coast Mountains School District 82 is part of the Wave 2 transition to MyEducationBC which will be replacing BCeSiS on August 24, 2015.  In conjunction with this transition, school district personnel have been involved in training and planning for a smooth transition to this new Student Information System.

It is the CMSD82 Implementation Team’s intention to provide introductory in-service between now and the end of the school year.  Further training will be provided in early September and supports are in place in each community for emergent issues.

The priority for Teachers will be that of attendance and gradebook set-up.  If time permits in June, School Principals and Vice Principals may choose to venture into the area of report card entry, but that decision will be made on a school-by-school basis.  If not dealt with in June, report card entry training will be provided well in advance of first term report cards.
