The GSSG Final report is due to MDE by May 27, 2022.
- Log in to Catamaran.
- Access the GSSG Final Report in two ways:

- On the Dashboard, choose the Search link in the upper right-hand corner of the page. Using the search function, select Monitoring. Filter the search results by selecting General Supervision to access the 2021-22 GSSG Activity.
Before completing the GSSG Final Report, the ISD may wish to review its submitted application, budget detail, and submitted mid-year report. The ISD may also review additional materials in the Resources box.
The 2021-22 GSSG Activity includes the submitted application and mid-year report on the menu.
Additionally, the ISD may also visit NexSys to access other GSSG related materials, such as the budget detail.
- On the General Supervision System Grant Menu, select the GSSG Final Report Form link under the Final Report heading.
- Complete the 2021-22 GSSG Final Report Form and choose Save or Save/Next to progress to the next section of the form.

- Getting Started

- Stages of Implementation
- Priority Area
- Making Connections
- It is recommended to review all sections of the report prior to submitting to MDE. To do so, download a full summary of the final report by either,
- Selecting the Download Full Final Report Summary button within the form or
- Selecting the 2021-22 GSSG Final Report (Download) link from the menu.
- Verify that each section of the final report has been completed.
- Submit the GSSG Final Report to MDE for review by selecting the Submit to MDE button at the top of the Fiscal page.
Note: If the ISD receives a page error while submitting the final report, this means that one or more questions was not completed. Follow the instructions in the page error to complete the question(s) as needed.
