AIM Advisory Groups
The OPI AIM staff is excited to welcome you to be a part of the AIM advisory groups! There are two types of AIM Advisory Groups. One group is for those districts that use Infinite Campus as their primary student information system, AKA District Edition. (This group also includes those districts that use the MT Value Added Edition of Infinite Campus.) There is another advisory group for those districts that do not use Infinite Campus as their primary student information AKA the Montana Edition of Infinite Campus.
Participants of both types of groups can attend these three hour long meetings with the OPI staff either online or in person at OPI. If you would like to participate or have suggestions for presentations for either of these group meetings please email or call Candi Standall at firstname.lastname@example.org (406-444-3495) and she’ll get you hooked up! (The OPI AIM staff also records these sessions and has them available after each meeting is completed.)
The purpose of these group meetings (held three times throughout the year) is for the district staff and the OPI AIM staff to meet and increase collaboration and communication between them. The OPI AIM staff’s agenda topics during these meetings include district requested trainings on the Infinite Campus software, AIM state reporting highlights, introductions to other OPI staff with discussions on their student data projects, upcoming Infinite Campus version updates and the OPI AIM Unit ‘works in progress’. We also encourage the district participants to incorporate their ideas on agenda topics.
Additional advantages of these group meetings is for these district staff to share ideas, tips, and solutions which will benefit the districts as well as the OPI. District staff who participate can also choose to serve as a resource for school districts that may need assistance related to state reporting or their common student system software functionality. Also, the OPI AIM staff typically communicate with the districts’ AIM staff in these groups to get feedback on AIM projects and business processes or when the need arises to test software functionality at the district level.
Please see below for the next meeting dates along with the list of participants with their contact information for which all have agreed to be listed as regional resources.
