Potential SLO Scoring/Submission Issue

A handful of evaluators have reported an issue that prevents them from scoring and submitting goal-setting SLOs in Schoolnet, though this issue does not seem to be affecting all evaluators.

If you encounter any technical issues please contact the Schoolnet help desk to document the problem and so they can follow up with you once it has been corrected. The phone number for the help desk is 866-697-6435 and it is staffed from 5:00am to 7:00pm. You can also email the help desk at schoolnetsupport@pearson.com, but response time will be quicker if you call.

PLEASE NOTE: The issue does not impact a teacher’s ability to enter, revise, or share their SLO nor does it prevent evaluators from approving them.
