Certificates of Attendance (Class rolls)
The common class roll will be presented to the CE Council at their next meeting.
No Grade Scheme
As of now, there is still a grading scheme for Youth and ALL courses. The Workgroup would like to see that removed so that class rolls wouldn't be required for these courses. Colleges are trying to clean up courses that have never had grades assigned, so that they stop pulling into reports.
Needs to go to CE Council for discussion and approval.
Filemaker Pro has too many years of accumulated data in it. The Workgroup feels that just the last two years should be stored. Danny is working with District to solve problems of missing information, etc. Candy suggested bringing data in from the warehouse,putting it into Excel, cleaning it up and then importing it back into FMP.
CE Registration Forms
The form has some errors on it and needs cleaning up. It needs to be redone with the new logo and name. Candy has corrected Tomball's zipcode and will send the PDF to Kathy for further corrections.
Colleges have different processes for producing their program certificates. Tomball uses their regular certificates with special gold stickers applied. The NHC Certicate packet was passed around for review. After discussion, the general concensus was that our current program certificate practices are fine and don't need any changes.
Corporate Training Certificates
They will probably start being done by District once the new CT model is laid out and finalized.
