What's New in MCIS for Fall 2018

New Student Login Option Using Clever Secure Sync

MCIS already integrates with Clever to provide students with an instant single sign-on (SSO) login to their MCIS accounts. Now, Clever Secure Sync provides the next step in automation by integrating with the school SIS and syncing accounts to MCIS on a daily basis. Best of all, this integration is available at no additional cost to you.

Implementation Planning Guides

As an administrator, teacher or counselor, you help students connect short-term school goals to their long-term vision for the future. Helping students become aware of their personal strengths, talents, interests and academic habits cannot only lead them to rewarding opportunities in their career choices but also help meet the evolving needs of the workforce.

We realize one of your challenges as an educator is finding time to fit career development activities into your class or school schedule. The Implementation Guides can help you overcome this challenge by providing a step-by-step guide to creating an implementation plan along with a worksheet to help you organize and prepare your plan. These guides can be found on the MCIS portal page under the Training Tab.

Customized Personal Learning Plan Reporting Tools

With the Custom Personal Learning Plan (PLP) Reports, site administrators are able to create custom reports to track progress of student PLP development.
