File Center Associating Files to Reporting Tabs

Files uploaded into the file center feed into specific locations within the suite. There may be some reports that use cross tabulation of data tables when a report defines the need but for the most part the files you upload should be accessible for report generation once a file has been loaded.

Files uploaded into the file center will feed into specific locations within the suite that can be accessed from the OnPoint menu list. The items below will associate the files loaded to their independent report locations.


PEIMS files for Fall, Summer, Mid Year and Extended year become the building blocks for all of the data and is primarily visible under the following tabs :  Dashboards, Student, Staff and Finance Reports.  The Search tab allows the users to search for both Student and Staff data.  When searching for specific individuals, the results will lead you to the Student and Staff Profiles which contain a tremendous amount of PEIMS information.

Since PEIMS data is the building block, any other data you upload through the File Center is then associated to the PEIMS data that has been loaded.  For example, uploading testing data will associate the data to the student data loaded into the system.  The testing data results are then available in reports under other tabs, such as Accountability and Assessment.

Other TSDS collections files will supply data that can be used on the Student and Staff tabs. (Class Roster, SPPI-14, ECDS, etc…)

District section contains PEIMS (Legacy) which is comprised of PEIMS data prior to 2015, the year the state moved away from the 80 character flat file upload to the current XML, Ed Fi data standards. To load PEIMS files prior to 2015, users utilize this tab.

Other upload options in this section include, CTE Transfer Courses, Profile Images (student and staff). Section 504-Pre 2019, General Ledger (Finance), and CCMR EWS Supplement.
