    • Add an option/button to delete a staff persons contracts and assignments all at once

      Add an option/button to the main staff list to be able to delete both the contract and all assignments for a staff person all at once. Currently, the only way to delete a staff person from the agency's staff list is to delete each assignment individually and then have to delete the contract for that person. This new option would allow you to delete a person from your staff list with one step but would issue a warning confirmation box first for example: "Are you sure you want to delete all assignments and contracts for WISEid, First Name Last Name…

      • Assignment Codes (link) posted on WISEstaff page

        A link to the codes on the main WISEstaff page so I can use as guide for degree level, teacher, subject, etc. Need directions or videos in a hand spot. Maybe a page link off of the main menu (left hand side)?

          • Contracted service providers should be able to report working staff in the same way as the CESAs

            Companies that are contracted to provide staff for regular operational services like student transportation , food service and substitute teaching should be provided with a method to report staff data directly to DPI on behalf of their school district customers.

            • Collect staff data continuously instead of using the Third Friday of September snapshot

              Use a process similar to the way an HR system works with employment start and end dates. This way, once the staff data has been loaded to DPI, I can maintain the data throughout the year as staffing changes happen.

              • Collect FTE for contracted, non-educator assignments in aggregate instead of by individual

                Districts would be able report rolled up FTE values by non-educator assignment codes for contracted staff.

                Districts with both employed and contracted positions would report FTE separately for individual employees and rolled up for contractors. DPI would combine the two data sets to produce a total FTE for reports

                Service providers like bus companies could provide to districts the total hours that are estimated for drivers on district routes for the year by school. Bus companies would need to determine how to split hours between schools / districts for shared routes.

                • Local Person ID's print on All Staff Report.

                  It would be nice if the Local Person ID's would print out on the All Staff Report or you could print a list of just the ID's. Please consider adding this for next year. Thank you

                    • Add the Contracted question to all positions despite need for FTE or Salary

                      As a School District it would be useful when reviewing the all staff report to note if a position is contracted or not. This question should be asked weather or not the assignment should have FTE or Salary reported as well.

                      • When I resolve errors can it take me to the next error instead of the edit staff screen?

                        When I go through and view the WISEstaff errors under the validate staff data tab and resolve an error it takes me the edit staff screen. It would be more efficient if the system could take me right to the next error to be resolved instead of going through all the different screens. I appreciate your time and consideration.

                        • Form for Staff to report

                          For next year it would be nice to have a form that can be sent out to the staff with the %/Grade levels/ taught. Sometimes in small districts it can be quite a mixed bag.

                          Or an something that can be emailed to each staff member showing what last year's staff report says and ask them to revise.

                              If there were TOTALS for FTE, Salary and Benefits, then I could check it against my source data and know instantly if I had a mistake in my entries before I lock and submit.

                                Totals have been added to the FTE Summary Report. Totals cannot be added to the Salary Report because when persons have multiple assignments their Contract info including Salary and Fringe are repeated for each assignment therefore making totals for that report wouldn’t make sense. However, we now have a dashboard widget for Contracts and are going to be adding totals in drill in report there since this will only have 1 contract per person for Contract fields of Salary, Fringe, and FTE.
