This is the screen where you link the child(ren)s information from the COE
(CHILD/SCHOOL DATA) to the COE child(ren) panel.
You need to add each child individually via either the Add Child –
New SH (School History line) button or the Add Child – Existing SH (School
History line) button.
You use the Add Child – New SH button when you want to create a new
school history line for the child.
You use the Add Child – Existing SH button when you want to attach
this COE information to the most recent existing school history line.
Both buttons work the same way. Select the appropriate button.
NOTE: The Remove Child from COE button is to be used when you
erroneously add a student to the COE. Removing a child from the COE
Child(ren) panel does not remove the child from the MIS2000 database.
After clicking "Add Child" a student search screen appears. This screen is accessed from both the COE View and the Student View.
Student Search Screen
This screen has seven tabs across the top. First we will describe
how to use the search available on the Key Data tab.
Do Search For Child -
Searching for a child is an art which you will learn as you go
along. There are multiple strategies to search for a child. Searching here
works much like searching with Google. The more criteria you put in the
fewer hits you will get. Use as few fields as necessary to locate the
Last Name field - Type in four or more characters. You can
type more characters to narrow the search.
Last Name 2 field - Rarely used except to narrow the search
First Name field - Type in four or more characters. You can
type more characters to narrow the search.
Middle (Name) field – Rarely used except to narrow the search
Student ID field – Rarely used with the exception of locating
errors in student’s name.
Birthdate field – Used when you have multiple identical names
or when you only have the birthdate.
Birth City field – may be eliminated from search but not from
Advocate field – The Show Enrollment Info check box must be
checked for this criteria to be used in a search. If the Advocate’s
name hasn’t been added to a School History line for the child this
search won’t bring up the child’s record.
COE Number field – Rarely used when adding a child to the
COE. The advantage of this search is that you can locate a group of
children. This is more often used from the Student View than in the COE
View. For example if you need to update information for all the
children on one Certificate of Eligibility.
Male Parent and Female Parent fields – Rarely used when
adding a child to the COE. The advantage of this search is that you can locate a
family without looking up the COE number or locate a child when you
don’t have the whole name of the child at hand. This is more often used
from the Student View than in the COE View.
Buttons on the Right side of the screen
The Do Search for Child button searches your local data only. Click
on this button after entering the criteria in the fields described above.
A list will appear below. If/when you locate the student highlight the
name by clicking on that line and click on the Select Child button. If
no names appear from the local search expand your search by using less
criteria or using other fields. Also check spelling. If no name appears
proceed to Search Remote. This procedure is described below.
Select Child button - When you locate the student, highlight
the name by clicking on that line and click on the Select Child button.
This takes you back to the COE Child(ren) Panel.
Add to List button – Rarely used. Can be useful for creating
a list of students for printing information about them.
New Child button – When the child doesn’t appear on the local
or remote search click on this button to create a new student ID. This
will take you back to the COE Children Panel.
Close button – Used to close the window.
Search Remote button – This searches the statewide database
for possible student matches. A list will appear below. If/when you locate
the student highlight the name by clicking on that line and click on
the Download Student button. If no names appear from the local search
expand your search by using less criteria or using other fields. Also
check spelling. If the server is down or unreachable postpone adding
the child to your database.
IMPORTANT; When adding a student to the COE, it is required to do a Student Search and a Remote Search per student in order to prevent duplicates throughout the State
Download Student button – This button is grayed out until you
have found the student on the statewide database via the Remote Search.
When you select the student and click on the Download Student button
you will be taken back to the COE Children panel.
You will repeat this procedure for each child on the certificate.
You will be doing this for each and every child on the COE. It is a necessary process and you will get use to it in a short amount of time.
Use of the other tabs will be described when discussing the Student
View of MIS2000.

Enr. Date field – The Enr(ollment) Date field.
The METS Enrollment Date will be first date of the summer eligibility period of the current summer (i.e. June 26, 2015). If the student moves in after the first date of the eligibility period (i.e. after June 26, 2015) the METS enrollment date will be the residency date for that student.
School Year Enrollment
The METS Enrollment Date will be September 1st of the current school year if the student is residing in the district on September 1st. If the student moves in after September 1st then the METS Enrollment Date will be the residency date for that student.
When the Residency Date on the certificate is within the current
funding year, use the Residency Date as the Enrollment Date. If the
Residency Date is prior to the current funding year use September 1st.
Before CSPR Submission: For students identified after 9/1/14 and before CSPR submission (normally the first week of January) with a Residency Date before 9/1/14 put in an R Enrollment for Enrollment Date of 8/31/14 and Withdraw on 8/31/14. Then, enroll the student for the current year, in this case, 09/01/14.
Example: Family X identified on 12/15/14 (New Family/Form) with
Residency Date of 7/1/14. Family should have Enrollment Date of 8/31/14
and Withdrawn 8/31/14 of Type R. Then Enroll the family on 9/1/14.
After CSPR Submission: For students identified after CSPR submission (normally the first week of January) with a Residency Date before 09/01/14, the enrollment date will be the first day of the enrollment period. You cannot add an enrollment line for any past year in which CSPR was already submitted to the State.
Example: Family Y identified 4/22/15 (New Family) with a Residency Date of 8/10/14. Family should have Enrollment Date of 09/01/14.
