What is DYCD Connect? DYCD Connect is a single point of access to three applications for tracking participant and activities, program evaluation and monitoring, and requesting capacity building support. This training will focus on the Participant Tracking System (PTS), which captures and tracks program activities, participant intake and enrollment, and attendance.

This training focuses on workscope management after your workscope has been approved. This training will not cover functionality related to the Evaluation and Monitoring System (EMS), which includes evaluations, action plans and incident reports.

Trainings are designed for COMPASS Middle School program staff members who are responsible for entering and maintaining program data. Individuals must know how to use a computer to attend this training.

This training will:

  • Offer hands-on training to users on the necessary steps needed to navigate efficiently throughout the PTS database system.

  • Educate staff with the rationale for and contents of the workscope.

  • Train staff to enter participant enrollment, activities/groups and attendance data.

  • Demonstrate how the Workscope reflects the program’s plan and how to make adjustments/changes to accurately reflect any changes made to the plan.

  • Troubleshoot different scenarios that programs may experience in their day-to-day work, such as issues with attendance and changing Activity Schedules.
