FAQs, Details, and Points to Note

  1.  WISEdata uses Education Organization ID numbers exclusively. Formerly used four-digit LEA (District) Code and four-digit School Codes are not used by WISEdata reporting although these codes ARE still used by other reports submitted to DPI (i.e., School Directory data).   Your SIS vendor should provide a method of storing both WISEdata Education Organization ID numbers for Districts and Schools as well as LEA and School Codes.
  2. WISEdata Education Organization ID Numbers are unique within the state of Wisconsin across Public Districts, Public Schools, Charter Schools, Private Schools, etc...   
  3. WISEdata Education Organization ID Numbers can be any length, and sometimes EdOrg ID numbers are four-digits long.  Be careful not to confuse a four-digit EdOrg ID  with a four-digit LEA (District) Code or a four-digit School Code and vice versa. 
  4. Sometimes DPI may refer to education organization ID numbers as Agency Keys or Agency Numbers.
