Alternative Organizational Structures (AOS's)

AOSs should report data in the following manner:

Infinite Campus student data

Students will need to have their resident SAU reported as the member entities that make up the AOS.

  • Schools in Infinite Campus will belong to the member entities within the AOS, meaning that students will have to be entered by users who have access to those member entities.
  • Those AOSs that upload data will need to do separate uploads for each member entity within the AOS.
Data will be aggregated to the AOS level for Essential Programs & Services (EPS) Reporting and the EPS reports will only be available at the AOS level. All other reporting, including assessment and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), will be done at the member entity level. AOS staff will need to have an Infinite Campus State Edition login for the member entities within the AOS and also a login for the AOS itself. The member entities within each AOS will continue to use the SAU IDs that were used last year. The AOS will receive its own unique ID for reporting purposes.

MEDMS staff data

Staff data will need to be reported under the member entity that is the employer:

  • School staff and those staff associated only with a member entity in the AOS will need to be reported to the employing member entity.
  • AOS staff (superintendents, administrative staff, business managers, and other central office staff that are AOS employees) will need to be reported to the AOS.
Those needing access to the MEDMS system will require a login for the member entities within the AOS and also a login for the AOS itself. Member entity usernames and passwords will be the same as last year. AOS staff will need to be assigned new usernames and passwords. AOSs with Infinite Campus District Edition will need to enter their staff directly into the MEDMS staff system.

Other MEDMS applications

Highly Qualified Teacher, School Approval, Transportation, etc. – forms will need to be filled out at the member entity level, not at the AOS level.

School Food Reimbursement System (SFRS) data will be reported and reimbursed at the member entity level unless the AOS reorganization plan indicates that food services are administered by the AOS and not the member entities.

AYP and Assessment reporting will be done at the member entity level, not at the AOS level.

The MEDMS Financial System will only receive data at the AOS level and not at the member entity level. MEDMS/FS users will be assigned new AOS usernames and passwords.

If you have questions regarding data and how it is to be entered into the various systems, please contact Brian Snow at 624-6790 or mailto:brian.snow@maine.gov
