EIS 2022 Unfilled Positions
You may have received an email that your FTE (full-time equivalence) values entered for Unfilled Positions have exceeded the threshold.
FTE for a single position is a value within a range from 0 to 1.0, and is
not a percentage. The total FTE for a single Position Code is the sum of FTEs of the unfilled positions that share said Position Code. For example, if a district has two unfilled positions with a 200 Position Code, each with an FTE of 0.5 (half time), they they will report a total unfilled FTE of 1.0 for the 200 Position Code. Similarly, if a district has 3 full-time and one half-time unfilled positions with a Position Code 206, they will report 3.5 total unfilled FTE (3.0 + 0.5) for that Position Code.
Please note that these data are to be reported based on positions that remained unfilled as of
October 1, 2021. Any positions that were filled
AFTER 10/1/2021 will still be reported as
unfilled on this report.
This data can be corrected by editing the FTE values directly in the EIS application through IWAS, or submitted via batch file. Instructions for either method can be found below.
