SPARQ Availability

SPARQ is now available and Release 7.5 has been deployed.

 
Q1 PY 2018 Authorized Positions

The PY 2018 authorized positions have been uploaded to SPARQ.  Grantees should now allocate their PY 2018 positions to their sub-grantees and associate all of the counties they are authorized to serve to their sub-grantees.  

Grantees should complete the allocation process by July 27, 2018.  Shortly after that, SPARQ will use the allocations and minimum wages by county to generate customized modified positions for all grantees and sub-grantees.

 
The PY17 Quarter 4 close

The PY17 Quarter 4 close has been scheduled for August 15, 2018. Here is the detailed schedule:


11 PM EDT, Monday, August 13 – All PY17 Q4 data should be entered into SPARQ.

Morning of Tuesday, August 14 – All grantees should take a final look at their DQRs. If any cross-grantee errors have arisen, please notify SCSEP Help at once so that they may help resolve these issues. It is strongly recommended that no additional data be entered. Please use this time solely to resolve any remaining errors.

12 noon EDT, Wednesday, August 15 – SPARQ will close for the processing of the PY17 Q4 QPRs. Any data entered after noon on August 15 will not be reflected in the PY17 Q4 QPRs.

Modified Positions on SCSEPED.org

SCSEPED.org is now displaying enrollments as of 10/2/17 in all tables for Q2 PY 2017.

Starting with Q1 PY 2017, SCSEPED.org is now carrying modified positions in addition to authorized positions. There are three new menu items for Modified Positions by State, Modified Positions by Grantee, and Download Modified Positions. In addition, the Maps function now displays counts of modified positions rather than authorized positions. Home and Definitions have been revised to reflect these changes. 
                     
PY 2017 Authorized Positions have been Uploaded to SPARQ.

Grantee should now allocate their PY 2017 positions to their sub-grantees and associate all of the counties they are authorized to serve to their sub-grantees.  Instructions can be found at:

http://scsep-help.com/dotnetnuke/SPARQDocumentation/AuthorizedPositionsUtility.aspx

Grantees should complete the allocation process by September 2.  Shortly after that, SPARQ will use the allocations and minimum wages by county to generate customized modified positions for all grantees and sub-grantees.

Please contact SCEP Help (help@scsep-help.com) if you have any questions or need assistance.

Resetting Passwords

A security enhancement has been made to the SPARQ login page.  Previously, a user who forgot the password could request that the password be sent via e-mail.  Since it is not secure to send current passwords via e-mail, that function has been replaced.  The new function now allows a user to reset the password.  The following message is displayed at the bottom of the login screen:

 

To reset your password, enter your user ID then click here, and you will be sent an e-mail containing your temporary login information.

 

When the user logs in with the temporary password, it will be necessary to change the password immediately.  This new function can be used by a user who has forgotten the password, or by a user who has accidentally locked the account by entering an incorrect password three times.  Users with expired accounts will not be able to use this reset function.  Instead, they will receive the following message:

 

You cannot reset your password because your password is expired. Please contact your administrator



 For questions about your user ID or password, please contact your grantee administrator.
