Over the past few weeks, NJSMART has rolled out a few changes to the upcoming Start Strong and SMID Management. Here are a few updates:
- Start Strong Registration Submission
The file layout is the same as last year. No OnCourse changes were required for you to generate your export file.
** Pro Tip** - when you need to batch update student records, you can tons of time with the "Import from File" feature (see how it works) of the Batch Updater. If you don't have this feature activated in your account, e-mail email@example.com.
- SMID Management (October 2022)
Due to the new state law A2835, two new data elements have been added to capture staff member vacancy and retention data for the 2022-23 school year. They are Employment Status and Employment Separation Type. These modifications are available now in every OnCourse staff record, under the NJSMART tab, listed in SMID Management.
- WCAG Accessibility
You've likely noticed a big change to the OnCourse Connect portal! Released in July, this update ensures your compliance with NJ Act A4856. It ensures that every student can have an equitable experience with OnCourse, including those with cognitive and learning disabilities, low vision, and disabilities on mobile devices.
