School Directory Data

School Directory app icon

The School Directory application allows districts, non-district-sponsored charter schools, and private schools to update the DPI database directly instead of submitting changes on paper forms for the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) to enter. The application is open year-round except for the month of August.

The printed Wisconsin School Directory 2017-2018 will include all data entered into the application before August 1, 2017. 

The School Directory application became active during the 2012-2013 school year, replacing the following paper forms:

  • PI-1201 Verification of Private Schools within Public School Districts
  • PI-1203 School District Statistical Report
  • PI-1280 Public School Update
  • PI-1281 Private School Update (replaced in 2017)

The screens in the application roughly correspond to the old paper forms.
