SIF Weekly Update - February 1, 2013
Dear SIF District,
This email is the first of many that you will be receiving each Friday which will outline our progress with SIF for the week.
- An email was sent to all vendors on January 22nd which addressed our efforts in bettering the SIF process.
- An updated Massachusetts SIF Profile was sent to all vendors on January 25th. Along with the profile, we included a second document which addressed some of the issues that gave us all a little trouble in October such as summer events, school within a school issues, "ghost" schools, and attendance and membership issues.
- Your vendors were asked to take a few days to review the updated profile and document their questions. In addition, we have scheduled meetings with them to discuss the updated Massachusetts SIF profile, project goals, and timelines. We had 2 very successful meeting so far this week with another scheduled for this afternoon. The full schedule is below.
|X2 ||Wednesday, January 30|
|IMG ||Thursday, January 31|
|MMS ||Friday, February 1|
|Infinite Campus ||Tuesday, February 5|
|Rediker ||Wednesday, February 6|
|Pearson ||Thursday, February 7|
|Sungard ||Thursday, February 6|
As a reminder, all SIF districts will be submitting and certifying their March SIMS via the legacy application.
We look forward to working with you and your vendors as we get ready for the end of year SIF collection.
