A key component of Nebraska's school accountability system involves school districts reporting information on an elementary, middle school and high school level. With jmc, schools that combine all grade levels into one PK-12 jmc building have the ability to report students using state appointed elementary, middle school and high school building numbers. Simply assign a logical building number for all students in a grade with a few clicks in jmc Office!
To change the building number for all students in a grade level, head to Edit > Mass Change Fields in jmc Office.
Step One: Select "Building Number" from the "Change" drop-down list to change the building number for a group of students.
Step Two: Enter the state assigned building number in the "new value" field to associate a building number with the selected group of students.
Step Three: Select a grade from the "grade level" drop-down list to apply the change to all students in a specific grade.
Step Four: Select "overwrite it" from the "If a student already has a value in the field" drop-down list to replace any existing building numbers with the new value.
Step Five: Select "Change Active and Inactive Students" from the "Active Status" drop-down list to apply the changes to all students in your database.
Step Six: Click the "Find Students" button to view the number of students to which this change will apply.
Step Seven: Click the "Update Students" button to apply building number changes to the View Student Data page for all students in the selected grade level.
Helpful Tip: Need to change the building number for an individual student? Head to that student's View Student Data page, edit the "Building #" field and click the "Save" button to change the logical building for an individual student.
