Coming Labor Day- New Teacher Dashboard Coming Labor Day weekend, teachers will see a BRAND NEW Teacher Dashboard when they log into SLDS.
The above screenshot is a sample of how the new customizable
dashboard will look when a teacher logs into SLDS. The
available tiles (applications) will vary depending upon the
district-assigned rights to that teacher (all tiles will not
be available to all teachers). On the first time login,
teachers will get a message telling them about the new
dashboard. In that message, teachers will be told about
"Classic SLDS." "Classic SLDS" is how we will refer to the
previous version. Teachers will still be able to access the
previous version by clicking on the very first tile "Classic
SLDS." So, until you become familiar with the new tile
layout, you can always go to the previous version and find
what you are looking for.

Fall Admin Summits
It has been 2 years since our last
SLDS Admin Summits. If you attended in the past, you might
recall that SLDS Admin Summits are NOT intended to be
“Training Sessions.” If they are not training sessions, then
you may be wondering, “What are they?” |
Admin Summits are designed to share with administrators the variety of applications offered inside of SLDS. With so many new applications added inside of SLDS over the past year, this year’s Summits will probably be even more fast-paced than previous years. Our intent is to share as much BROAD information as possible in the three hours that we have scheduled. Our hope is that you will be better informed to make decisions about training requests that best suit your needs.
This year we have arranged nine locations all across the state. Each session begins at 9:00 and runs to 12:00. Seats are limited, so please only register if you have every intention of attending. When you register you will be asked to share with us any questions or topics you would like answered or discussed during the summit; so please take a moment to ponder those first. We want to be sure your attendance is a beneficial use of your time.
You can register for the Admin Summit in your area by visiting
Center for Parents
The SLDS Training Team has
developed a "Training
Center for Parents." This is a place where parents and
students can go online to review videos and user guides for
the various tiles (applications) that are now available to
them. We even developed a training module that districts and
school administrators can schedule, where an SLDS trainer
will come in and work with their staff to help the educators
find the resources they can share with parents and students.
This will definitely boost "Family Engagement."
We Want Your Ideas Over the past year, we have heard many great ideas from your fellow educators. Please consider sharing your ideas by posting to your favorite social media and using the #MyGaSLDS. If you would prefer sharing your idea(s) directly to us, simply send them via email to SLDS@doe.k12.ga.uss
The Georgia Department of Education's SLDS training team provides training on all components of the Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) free of charge to any Georgia public school. Each session is tailored to suit the audience in attendance and the allotted timeframe provided by school or system level personnel. All sessions are designed to be "hands-on" so attendees should have access to computers during the sessions. Once a training request is received through email or the Training Request Form, a GaDOE trainer will reach out to the requester to discuss training options to meet the needs of the school or system.
