What should school districts do to prepare to report position codes?
Districts and cooperatives should make changes needed to enter and track position codes for each employee in the local district HR/payroll system. Computer systems may need programming enhancements to track at least one position code for each employee. Employees with multiple positions should be tracked using the position codes for each position.
Several computer software vendors who work with Montana schools have already worked with OPI during a pilot project during FY 2011-12 and have implemented the changes needed to provide this capability. Vendors and school technology staff may contact OPI for additional file and data descriptions, if needed.
