  • Downtime:

    In preparation for the 2018-19 administration, TIDE will be offline from July 30 to August 5, 2018. ORS downtime will start on July 27, 2018. We recommend schools download all ISRs and data files prior to the ORS downtime. During this period, AIRWays Reports and Practice Test will be offline August 4–5. For the complete schedule, see the Important Dates page.

  • 2018–19 Roster Preparation

    School Coordinators who wish to prepare their rosters for the 2018–19 administration should create a Roster Upload File prior to the TIDE downtime starting July 30 (see the TIDE User Guide). The upload files can be loaded after TIDE opens for the 2018-19 school year on August 6, 2018. Any rosters created directly in TIDE UI or uploaded will be deleted on July 30.

    Notes:

    • Creating an roster upload file is optional. Coordinators may still have to make changes to reflect administration or school enrollment changes.
    • School Coordinators can also plan to start creating rosters after TIDE opens.
