Recent Announcements

  • Rosters that were created prior to the TIDE roll-over for 2017-2018 are no longer available in the system. If you have not previously reviewed or saved the Student ISRs/Student result data in the Online Reporting System (ORS), teachers will need to request that the school coordinator (SC) pull the 2016-17 data from Retrieve Student Results.

    Rosters created in TIDE from August 7 through August 29, will not be visible in the Online Reporting System or AIR Ways until the systems roll-over for the 2017-18 school year. New rosters in ORS and AIR Ways will be available on August 30. Afterwards, users can select the desired school year and rosters of their choice to view data.

    For more assistance, please contact the help desk.
