ESY Summer 2019 Data form - Action Required

The ESY Summer 2019 Data form will be used by schools with students (home and host) participating in 2019 ESY Summer programs to collect data which will be used by Pasco County’s Office for Technology and Information Services to setup each participating Summer school in the myStudent SIS for State Reporting purposes. 

 Please enter all applicable data fields completely to ensure accurate State reporting representation and full access to necessary resources across the myStudent platform.

As your school team is preparing for Summer ESY and selecting the students who will be attending summer programs, it is essential to review the directions for set-up in myStudent for Summer / ESY. 

Within the directions is a link for information needed for submission by April 19, 2019.  Additionally, the link to that information is here. This information is required to properly capture data for state reporting purposes, as well as, for summer letters to print accurately from the student system for your individual school. In addition, there is a recording walking users through the set up and use of the ESY Tab. The link to the webinar is ESY Set-up Recording. 

Prior to ESY, OTIS will be sharing updates on scheduling individual students for Summer/ESY with Data Entry Operators.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the help desk at
