Wisconsin Public and Choice Schools are required to

submit data for state and federal reporting requirements
Basic demographics

The data is required to be collected at DPI.

Educators and the public can also use the
data to make informed decisions.

Ease the burden of state reporting on schools
Provide vendor neutral solution for collecting
data for state and federal reporting from
districts via their SIS
Accomplished by implementing a
standardized interoperability framework.

What is WISEdata Ed-Fi Integration?


Partnering with school districts and choice school existing SIS

vendors to automate processes and validate data integrity to ensure accuracy. Elimination of
entry to multiple systems.


The new system involves districts sending

required data to the department via data already in their SIS. Initially a new state interface will be
available to present business rule issues (info, warnings, errors) after state business rules run.
Issues are resolved in SIS.


A critical objective is to save districts time and resources as

well as provide data quality feedback in a much more timely fashion. Free up district resources
to focus on all other tasks they need to perform and less on state reporting.

ONE DATA STANDARD: Using the Ed-Fi Data Standard serves as the foundation
for enabling interoperability among secure education data systems designed to improve student
achievement and teacher satisfaction.
