Abstract:

This guide was developed to assist the nation's elementary and secondary schools and school districts address their Year 2000 (Y2K) problem. The guide is divided into three sections: Squashing the Millennium Bug Step-by-Step; Remediating Specific Types of Systems; and Appendix. The first chapter presents the following steps for tackling the Year 2000 problem in the school or school district: (1) Becoming Familiar with the Year 2000 Problem; (2) Establishing a Y2K Action Team; (3) Assessment: Determining the extent of your problem; (4) Awareness: Making your problem known; (5) Planning: Figuring out how you're going to proceed; (6) Remediation: Making your fixes; (7) Testing: Making sure everything works; and (8) Implementation: Using your compliant systems. At the beginning of each step is a timeline indicating a progression point (the guide aims for Year 2000 compliance by September 9, 1999). Each step identifies time on task, reason for that particular step, issues to address, and pertinent information for accomplishing the step. Appendices provide additional/more detailed information on: key dates to consider; embedded devices; managing the Y2K compliance of suppliers; sample letter to vendors; contract and procurement language; contingency planning; remediation in urban school districts; and resources and links. Throughout the guide are two special designations (see page 1 for symbols) indicating that supplementary material is available at a particular appendix or a web site. (AEF).
