Nebraska utilizes ADVISER as the vehicle to assist schools with state reporting. jmc provides a connection to ADVISER via the Ed-Fi settings in jmc Office helping you share student and school information with the state when it comes time for state reporting. After you have acquired your Ed-Fi credentials from the NDE, you are ready to configure your Ed-Fi settings to enable the connection to ADVISER.

To configure your Ed-Fi settings, log in to jmc Office and go to File > Administrator Options.

Step One: Click the "Ed-Fi Settings" link in the "Ed-Fi Settings" box to edit the settings that enable your connection to ADVISER.

Step Two: Place a checkmark in the "Enable Ed-Fi Interchanges" checkbox to allow jmc to send and receive information through ADVISER.

Step Three: Enter your email address in the "Ed-Fi Nightly Attendance Error Notification Email Address" field to receive an email explaining errors detected during your nightly sync.

Step Four (optional): Place a checkmark in the "Enable Posting of Ed-Fi Special Education (SSEPA) Resources" checkbox to allow the NDE to access your school's special education data.

Helpful Tip: Remove the checkmark from the "Enable Posting of Ed-Fi Special Education (SSEPA) Resource" checkbox if your school uses a system outside of jmc for maintaining and reporting special education data to the NDE.

Step Five: Select a building from the "Building" drop-down list to edit nightly attendance reporting settings for that building.

Step Six: Place a checkmark in the "Enable nightly submission for student School Attendance (required)" checkbox to submit AM/PM attendance to the state nightly.

Step Seven (optional): Place a checkmark in the "Enable nightly submission for Student Section Attendance (recommended)" checkbox to submit period attendance to the state nightly.

Fun Fact: The "Enable nightly submission for Student Section Attendance (recommended)" function is only available for schools tracking period attendance.

Step Eight: Click the "Save" button to update your changes.

Helpful Tip: Contact adviserhelp@nebraskacloud.org to acquire your Ed-Fi credentials (key and secret) from NDE.
