Welcome to the Kamloops/Thompson School District No. 73 support site for MyEducation BC. The resources here will help you navigate the Student Information System (SIS) in our district.

The initial planning and implementation of MyEducation BC in School District No. 73 began in February 2014.  In September 2016, our District is now entering our second full school year of utilizing this SIS.  We look forward to rolling out additional features of MyEducationBC through the upcoming year.

    School Admin & Secretaries:

    As we prepare for the start of the 2016/17 school year, it important for users to revisit the standards and practices that have been developed and defined to ensure best collaborative use of the MyEducation BC student information system. Please re-acquaint yourself with these standards and practices by reviewing the following documents:

    The MyEdBC Enrollment Management & Student Demographics guide was revised in August 2016.  The document is located in this folder:  Clerical > Enrollment and Withdrawal > MyEdBC Enrollment Management & Student Demographics V2.1

    Please refer to the newest version only. 

    Student Record Archiving in MyEdBC
    Following EOYR, the student archive procedure was performed in the Production environment. This is now an annual event that will be scheduled to run post-EOYR as a standard operating procedure.
    Student records are only archived if they meet the following criteria:
    • Student is Inactive for a period of 4 years, and
    • Student is over 6 years of age

    Important:  School and District personnel responsible for student registration are reminded to query the archive database if a student was previously enrolled in a BC school and is not found in the live environment during the regular restricted query process.

    Information on this was added to the Enrollment and Demographics reference guide, sections 2.1.3 Admitting a student from the Archive Environment (pages 11-12) and 2.2.2 Withdrawn students and Archiving (pages 17-18)

    Changes to Examinable Courses (per Ministry of Ed)
    by Implementation Team - Tuesday, 30 August 2016, 10:34 AM
     

    High School Administration:

    Fujitsu is updating the course codes to remove the Exam flag for those courses that are no longer examinable.  As well,  the DVRs and Transcript reports will be updated to remove the required exams

    Schools  should hold off on running the Course Exam Synchronization procedure until the above work is complete.
    The consequence of running it beforehand is that the school will end up with orphaned exam records that they will have to clean up manually.
