Update: August 22nd


I’d like to start off by welcoming all of you back. I hope that you enjoyed your summer and had opportunities to kick your feet up and relax. Now that it’s mid-August, we’re rolling up our sleeves to kick off the new school year. I will be sending out updates regarding Advanced Opportunities, including deadlines, activities, and FAQ’s. If you’d like to be taken off this list, please let me know. Or if you have a colleague that you feel needs this information, let me know and I’ll be happy to add them to my email list.

Summer Submissions:
Submission deadline for summer activity is September 2nd. If you are still entering data for summer activity, please prioritize this task.  Course provider need time to verify and match the data before your district can submit to the SDE. You can view your match rate on the “College Enrollment Status Match” under the reports tab.  Each provider must match 100% before your district is able to submit. Payments will go out at the end of September. Late submissions will not be paid until January (which may result in account holds for your students).

Co-mingled Data:
Please do not co-mingle data between terms. Before you begin approving your fall requests from students, please make sure you’ve submitted your summer data.  If you begin approving requests for the fall, you will not be able to match your data in time with colleges to submit summer requests by September 2nd.

Student Resources:
On the state department website you will find several new student resources including a 5 minute video that you can use to help student register for an account and apply for funds, as well as sample learning plans. Please know that personnel at the various colleges and universities are available to assist with transition advising, and planning for your students.

It was a pleasure to see so many familiar and new faces at the conference. We also appreciate the contributions of all those who helped put it together. If you were unable to make it to the conference, but want to access resources, presentations can be found on the conference website under the “Workshops” tab.

As always, the Advanced Opportunities Support team is here to help. We are experiencing a large volume of inquiries because students are coming back to school. Please know that we will get back to you just as quickly as possible. Thank you for all that you do for Idaho’s kids.
