Posted on November 14, 2014 5:45 pm :: The outside consultant hired by LA Unified to help fix the district’s new data tracking system is reporting that, through yesterday, nearly 5,000 students had been affected by flaws in the MiSiS computer system.
In a breakdown the district released today, the Viramontes Group found that 2,580 students were without schedules, 1,251 had duplicate IDs and another 1,136 were missing their district IDs — for a total of 4,967 students suffering issues linked to the system.
In addition, the report identified 229 “programming bugs” through Nov. 10, a list of problems affecting more than two dozen categories of data, such as attendance, grade books, state reporting and transcripts.
The seven page report also includes a section of “observations,” which lists problems found, steps taken to eliminate them and further work that needs to be done.
The report lists 30 issues to be dealt with, 29 of which require additional work.
