At the request of FISA BC , the Ministry has changed the 1701 data collection snapshot date for independent schools to October 17, 2014 to align with the adjusted 1701 dates for public schools. Please note the following dates:
Snapshot: October 17
Files Due: October 24
This change was requested by the FISA BC Board of Directors in order to align the snapshot date with the public system and avoid the risk of any students going unreported should student transfers occur between October 1 and October 17th. This change applies to the current school year only.
The Ministry data collection website has now been updated to reflect the adjusted dates. Thank-you for your immediate attention to this important matter.
For BCeSIS Schools we did a session a couple weeks ago on 1701, but you can view the recording here: http://bcsupportonline.com/training-recordings/1701-2/

When you need the ability to have additional locally developed courses, you need to create flavors of courses. Here is a video on how to create the flavors.

If you are getting reports of duplicate PEN errors from the Ministry, then please submit the duplicates to our helpdesk using the following form:
To All MyEdBC Schools. For those of you that experienced the “Calendar” where you couldn’t assign days and bell schedules to specific dates in the future. That issue should have been resolved now by the Provincial Team. You can go back into your calendar and setup those remaining dates. If you have any issues please report it to the helpdesk so that we can take it back to the Provincial team.
Dear schools, we have accidentally reset all passwords in MyedBC. We apologize for this error. Please advise all of your users of this change.
If users are currently logged in, you can change your password in set preferences > security > password change.
All other users should use the forgot password feature to reset their passwords. If there are issues, your administrator will be able to retrieve the generated password for you.
If you have any issues please submit a helpdesk ticket and we can help you with it.
We have just received the recording on taking AM/PM attendance from the Provincial team. You can view it here.
We have had a number of schools who have created username accounts for their staff and now are wondering how to retrieve those usernames and passwords. Adam has created a great little document which shows step-by-step how to view the usernames and passwords
We have also had a number of schools that are wondering how to create usernames and passwords for their staff and what login username they should use. Albert has created a document which shows step-by-step how to create usernames properly.
Managing Enrollment During having both BCeSIS and MyEdBC.
We highly suggest that all schools attend the following session, which will explain the process of how enrollment of student works between the two systems including cross-enrollment. These session will cover the process for both BCeSIS and MyEdBC schools so both school types are invited.
Date: Thursday August 28th @ 9:30am until 11:30am (although I don’t think it will go that long).

MyEducationBC Daily Attendance Training
The provincial team is training us later this week so the plan will be to do the training for school on Friday sometime. Stay tuned for details. Again we will be recording it if you have missed it. (the session should be short, 30mins)
A number of schools are receiving the following errror on their calendars when they are assign days and bell schedules. “The date specified is not in-session in the district calendar” and it is for random dates. It seems to be a bug in the system (and it is happening province wide) because we don’t have any dates set as non-session dates at the district level. The provincial team is aware of it and has been working on a solution for the last week. As soon as we have a solution from the provincial team I will be sending it out to all schools.
