Better late than never... or is it?

Attention those using the IARrific or IARrific + ACCESS plugins!

A lot changed with the 24.3 state reporting update in terms of IAR. 

  • Science accommodations were added (even though they are not labeled ISA).
  • Some of the field names for ELA/Math were changed (even though... what? why?).
  • The IAR Pre-ID tab added some accommodation validation (even though I still like mine better).

It took me a good chunk of spring break, but I have the IARrific stuff updated to reflect these changes.
Also updated some of my validation scripts and added a note that shows when you select the Read Aloud accommodation about it needing a separate session in PAN (thanks for the idea Rich).
Please makes sure you are running IL state reporting version 24.3+ before updating to version 2.0 of either plugin.

Now the big question is, will any of this effort matter in a year when IL decides to move ISA off of PAN?

Yardwork season is almost here!

Couple of minor updates to the List Students and Class Roster Auto-loader plugins. 

For those in Illinois, I know the recent state reporting update added fields for science/ISA accommodations. 
But these are in flux still (why no Accommodate 504 field?). And the IL PAN Pre-ID Report has yet to be updated for science. 
Once this stuff is worked out, I promise to update the IARrific plugins.

Hope to see some of you at the Myrtle Beach PSUG this coming May!

Shout Out to those shoveling snow

The Staff Shout Outs plugin version 1.3 has been released.
This version reworks how line breaks save in shout outs. Which in turn fixed a bug causing both email and display trouble.

Stay warm everyone!
