  • Where

P/C Dan Bartell, SN SEO Shallotte River,
D-27 Member IT Committee
Why a Rewrite was needed
  • Existing system was 15 years old.
  • The web environment has changed.
  • New data is available on the Server.
  • New requirements like USPS University and Trial
  • Need to support both web based tools anyone can
    use and tools specific to Windows based PCs.

General Directions
  • Track USPS Advance grades and elective courses.
  • Support Member Non-member Costs.
  • Use logon and Jobs held data for security (OD-1
  • Web based student input and tracking.
  • Make boating course completion information
    available online.

Boating Couse Completions
  • Last 6 years of ED26s ED27s are online.
  • Searches are available against this data.
  • Entry of missing ED26s ED27s.
  • Generation of Certificates cards will be
    available for those lost as soon as I get the
  • Import facility from BCA 2010 and the workbook.
    (BCA 2011?)

Student Tracking
  • Online boating course student entry and tracking
    with a student database.
  • Supports all browsers and OS platforms.
  • Automatic entry of online registrants and
    automatic USPS University Enrollment.
  • Entry of a passing grade automatically generates
    an ED26.

Student Tracking
  • A nightly run automatically generates ED27s with
    DEO, SEO, and NASBLA notifications.
  • ED26s and ED27s are sent to HQ and entered in the
    online databases.
  • Students can be imported from BCA 2010 and the
  • BCA 2011 has a fully functional interface.

Student Tracking
  • BCA 2011 interface provides, boating course
    seminar creation, downloads and uploads.
    Interface is completely integrated.
  • Mixed mode tracking is possible but not
  • BCA 2010 the Workbook are not directly
    supported by the new 800 system.

Student Tracking
  • The 800 online system can generate Certificates
    Cards for preformatted forms, blank forms or
    blank paper.
  • The 800 system provides the ability to send
    emails to a selected set of students.
  • Student emails are validated.

Student Tracking
  • The 800 system provides state reports student
  • Student data is deleted 90 days after course
    start date. Those passing are on the ED26
    database, and those becoming members or USPS
    University members are on the membership
  • A lot more is possible I need input from you to
    tell me what else is needed.

Seminar Completions
  • The 800 system has an online entry process for
    seminar completions.
  • It distinguishes between member completions and
    non-member completions for ease of input.
  • It is fully interfaced with BCA 2011.

SEO/DEO Tools Page
Time Frames
  • The new 800 system is online now.
  • Its starting page has a link to the old 800
  • That link will be removed by the end of February.
    (Depends on BCA 2011)
  • BCA 2010 and Workbook ED26, ED27 ED46
    interfaces will no longer work.
  • You must move to the new online 800 system with
    or without BCA 2011.

Future Directions
  • Enhancements to the 800 system will be provided.
    Let me know what is needed. When they will be
    available depends on the need, prioritization by
    the eddept, and the complexity.
  • There is a lot of pressure from states for
    complex reporting and we now have all the data in
    one place. These issues will also be addressed.
    However, requirements are needed.
