Special Program participation tracking determines whether (along with key info about how) a student "participates” in a given program at any given time (eg Special Education, Section 504, Advanced Learners, K-4 Literacy/TGRG) based on dates and content of completed documentation in SameGoal for any given student.
There are three main areas of the application for Special Programs participation tracking:
Programs Tab - The Programs tab appears when you visit a student. This Programs tab shows a summary of the programs this student currently participates in. The timeline is listed in reverse chronological order. To see a full timeline, users may click the Show full timeline link. The timeline includes:
Program Participation icon - A program participation icon displays throughout the application next to any student when they currently participate in a given program (as determined from the Programs tab). This helps users immediately identify students participating in certain programs. On hover, the icon shows basic information about the student’s participation.
Reports - All students no longer participating in a given program are not included in administrative reports by default (except for EMIS/historical reports). For example, students that have exited Special Education are no longer included in Special Education reports by default. To include these students in a given report, click the Advanced link and select not participating from the Program Enrollment section.
