  • There have been a number of changes to districts and schools over the last year as a result of district consolidations. Changes were recently made in TIDE to reflect these changes for 2018-2019. For districts or schools that were closed or moved user accounts had to be deleted from these schools in order to make the changes in TIDE. In these instances, the District Administrator will need to create new user accounts for testing staff. Users can be added manually or uploaded in TIDE.
