Agency is the valid DPI-assigned LEA number of the education agency. Agency code is required and used in multiple instances for both WISEid and WISEstaff.
In WISEid, the agency code will link to submitted data. In the event of altered data, such as a name or race change, a change request will be submitted. The agency that enters the new information and would like the change is referred to as the Requesting Agency. Any agencies associated with the WISEid person record that will need to approve or deny the change request are called the Dependent Agency.
In WISEstaff, an agency can be the hiring and/or working agency.
- Hiring LEA Number: Required. This must be a valid DPI-assigned LEA number of the agency responsible for reporting this data. Format is four digits with padded leading zeros accepted, but not required, e.g., 0001. This is the agency that hires the staff member and will report the staff member in WISEstaff.
- Working LEA Number: Required. This must be a valid DPI-assigned LEA number of the agency where an assignment is performed. Format is four digits with padded leading zeros accepted, but not required, e.g., 0001. This field applies to staff members who work in an agency that is different from the hiring agency and often used for subcontractors.
USES: This data element links an LEA to reported records in WISEstaff and to data and change requests in WISEid.
