AIM Beginning of Year Collection - Sept 20 thru Oct 15

Wednesday, September 1, 2010, 9:51 am

The purpose of the Beginning of the Year Collection is to finalize student enrollment data from the prior year, enter and/or verify last year's graduation information (for districts with grade 12 students), configure calendars for the 2010/2011 school year, assign and/or locate state student ID's, enroll students in an appropriate school and grade, enter program participation information, and verify dropouts (for students in grades 7-12).

Instructions for entering this information can be found at: /pub/index.php?dir=AIM/AIM%20Collections/Beginning%20of%20Year%20Collection/.

Student data from AIM will be used to provide students counts to the MAEFAIRS (school finance) system and generate the ANB count. We encourage AIM specialists to have all 2010-11 enrollment and attendance information entered and verified by the collection due date of October 15, 2010.  AIM specialists and MAEFAIRS registered users should work closely to ensure the data is accurate and verifiable.  

Questions regarding this collection should be directed to the AIM Helpdesk at 1-877-4AIMMT1 (1-877-424-6681) or
