USES: The various data elements are used in data collections, such as the demographic snapshot. WISEdata data submitted for PPP-SP students and students at DOC/ DHS is primarily used to meet federal reporting requirements in EDFacts and IDEA because we need to know who is IDEA eligible. EDFacts requirements include both DOC and DHS data for all students by gender, race/ethnicity, and grade level, regardless of disability status and not only during specified collection snapshots.

FAQs, Details, and Points to Note


  1. Juvenile Facility: DOC is required to submit WISEid and WISEdata records for students residing at and attending school in Type 1 juvenile correctional facilities (s. 938.02(19) and Type 1 prisons (s. 301.01 (5)).
  2. Attending DHS Schools: DHS is required to submit records for students residing at and attending school in DHS-operated institutions or facilities.
  3. DOC & DHS Data Differences: DOC and DHS obligations are separate from the obligations of school districts to serve and submit complete WISEid and WISEdata information for students in other facilities or institutions, including, but not limited to, county jails or detention centers.
  4. Discipline Data for DOC, DHS, PPP: No discipline information should be submitted for students in a Department of Corrections or Department of Health Services school or enrolled as a parentally-placed private student.
