How did EBS incorporate district feedback?
The Education Business Systems (EBS) team hosted a Feedback Session for Districts on Thursday, December 6, 2018, to collect user feedback. There were 36 participants from 17 organizations (# in parentheses is the # of people): Chula Vista (1), Encinitas (2), Escondido Elementary (2), Escondido High (1), Fallbrook Elementary (1), Grossmont (1), Guajome Park Academy (1), MiraCosta College (1), Oceanside (4), Poway (2), San Diego County Office of Education (10), San Dieguito (1), San Marcos (1), Santee (2), Sweetwater (1), Valley Center-Pauma Unified (1), and Vista (4).
We started with a presentation and overview to provide context about the project, including why we are changing to ServiceNow, how it will be different for you (compared to HEAT), how EBS is making the transition, and how districts can learn about the new system. There was a combination of paper-based and computer-based activities. There was a combination of guided instruction and independent activities so participants could explore ServiceNow. We asked participants to take notes so they could provide written feedback. There was a whole-group discussion so participants could share their feedback and hear what others had to say.

ONLINE TRAINING - Users logged in for online training on March 27 at 9 am, 11 am, 1 pm, or 3 pm
Was the SDCOE Service Portal be tested?
Yes! The SDCOE Service Portal was already in use for Student Information System (Synergy) customers. For PeopleSoft customers who went live on March 27, extensive testing began in November 2018 in a development environment. In February 2019, teams from Santee and Lemon Grove participated in a 8-day "parallel test" to ensure that tickets route as expected. Further testing was conducted by EBS after the parallel test ended.
When is the last day to use HEAT?
