LSPLutheran School Portal Update

As you have heard for the last few months, the LS Portal and LEIF will cease to exist on June 30, 2016. The LCMS Office of School Ministry does have a basic outline of changes that you may choose to share with your staff, located here:

One important item included in this link relates to saving school statistical data prior to June 30. Here is the excerpt:
"Once the current Lutheran School Portal closes, individual schools will NOT have the ability to directly access previous years' Early Childhood Center and School Statistical Reports. However, upon completion of a yearly update through the new process, schools will be prompted to print (or save to PDF) their completed Statistical Form and we encourage every school to do so for their records and future NLSA reporting. Additionally, District office staff will have access to previous years' Reports for all schools within their District. One further note to make is that schools need to
access their Portal accounts between now and June 30, 2016 in order to save a copy of all of their previous yearly Early Childhood Center and School Statistical Report forms. This can be accomplished by entering the "Services" tab and selecting "School Stats - Historical" from the list. Once there, selecting the specific "School Year" will bring up the previous Statistical Reports which can then be printed in paper form or printed electronically to PDF."
