IARrific + ACCESS

If you are in Illinois and participate in IAR testing... You most likely also participate in ACCESS 2.0 testing.
So why not track accommodations for both tests on a single student screen.
This plugin includes all the bells and whistles of IARrific PLUS has a section at the bottom of the student screen to track ACCESS 2.0 accommodations.
The ACCESS section is only made available if a student is marked both LEP (S_IL_STU_X.LEP) and either IEP (S_IL_STU_X.IEP) or 504 (S_IL_STU_Plan504_X.Participant).

Today's Bus Notes

Turns out in most of my elementary schools each classroom sends a student down to the office with bus notes each and every morning.
"Susie will be walking today", "Johnny will be dropped off at such and such the rest of the week", etc.
The office then compiles these slips of paper and hands out "Today's Bus Notes" to staff on bus duty and the drivers.
One of my front office friends explained this process to me and asked "Can you streamline this awful thing!"

IARrific for Illinois (Formerly PARCCtastic)

IARrific is a souped-up version of the IAR Pre-ID state tab. It does not replace the state screen, but instead creates a new student page called "IAR/DLM" linked off the student navigation (more2.html) on the admin side.
The accommodations for ELA and Math are hidden until the ela_accommodations or math_accommodations checkboxes are checked. This way it is super-easy to search for students who have any accommodations marked.

Instant Family Reps

One of my favorite t-sirts exclaims "Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script". This is how I feel about the family_rep field in PowerSchool. Does anyone really keep it up to date properly? And if you don't, aren't families at risk of missing that important mailing?
This plugin eliminates the need to manually maintain family reps.

How Does it work?
