Why do I have to add each point person responsible for carrying out action steps or monitoring activities as users in CIMS?
The field type for the Who in Steps 5-8 of Problem Solving changed in 2014-15 from a text box to a drop-down menu, which is populated with all Level 1 and 2 users for school problem solving, and with all Level 3 and 4 users for district problem solving. This change was made both to encourage the inclusion of multiple stakeholders in the planning and implementation processes, and in preparation for upcoming project management features that will be incorporated into CIMS, such as automated reminder messages to point persons identified in Problem Solving. Note: Many times, these point persons are also members of a leadership team within the school or district. If a user was already added to the system during the completion of Part I of the SIP or DIAP, their name will appear in all drop-down menus throughout the plan; they will not need to be added again.
