Programs: WISEdata, Roster

artifact

Programs are collected with a specific code set on WISEdata Portal, displayed either on the School Roster Details screen or on a Specific Student Details screen.

The use of the word 'program' on this data element page is in reference to the way that data is organized and categorized on WISEdata Portal. It should not be confused with other uses and definitions of the word 'Program/s' as referenced by legal obligations of programs that must be provided to specific student groups, or even with the way other academic teams within DPI (such as Career Education (CTE) Team or World Language Teams) use or define the word 'program.'

‘Programs’ is an umbrella term, and is defined differently by:

  • different teams across DPI
  • different SIS vendors / vendor tools
  • different data collections

Ask your student information system (SIS) vendor/s for their definition of 'Program.'

As displayed in WISEdata Portal, Programs are data collected with a specific code set, and have a specific program name. Again, the WISEdata Portal nomenclatures for program type and program name may differ from how the word program is used in/on other platforms.

Programs within WISEdata Portal can be academic (as displayed on the School Roster Details screen) or non-academic (demographically based, and displayed on a Specific Student Details screen). The screenshots below can help you see these two different ways that WISEdata Portal organizes, categorizes and displays Program data. The different sections below provide further description of these programs within WISEdata Portal.

One of the main reasons WISEdata Portal organizes data in these ways is to help produce Exports that provide useful grouping of students within specific categories. Exports on each Program are listed within the corresponding sections below.

USES: This data element ensures specific programs will be accounted correctly for aid purposes and for federal and state accountability.

Academic/School Roster Detail Programs in WISEdata Portal

Roster

Some Programs are academic, meaning that they are part of the Roster collection of data:

  • Roster is course information, data about students and teachers associated with the courses, and the location of where courses are taught, such as the primary school where the student is enrolled.

Educational program means a student could be enrolled in a course or courses that are part of a group of related courses that would allow students to achieve or attain a specific educational objectives.

School Roster Detail Programs in WDP occur during a Session (timeframe) and contain numerous Courses. Programs in WISEdata Portal, viewable on the School Roster Detail screen are connected to a student section association. Roster FAQ: For more information and use cases, see the Roster: Info, Help and FAQ  page.

Session

Session refers to a named time-frame within a school year, (school year, school term, and session, specifically as it refers to the time-frame during which a course is offered, in-person or otherwise, to one or more students at a time). These are defined by Wisconsin state statutes 115.001(12 through 14) (School Term, School Year, Session).

Courses

Courses refer to the classes students take throughout their school day. Many courses are available with a Program. Course information is collected at the school level. A course may be offered to with more than one section (e.g., Algebra I is offered for six periods, or have six sections, within the school day). This data is collected at the school level.

School Roster Detail Programs in WDP can be filtered by:

Career Education Displayed on the School Roster Details Screen

This data is connected to a student section association (/sSA). It is displayed to distinctly identify, within a single course:

Non-Academic/Student Specific Details Programs in WISEdata Portal

Non-Academic Programs display on a student-specific screen in WISEdata Portal, as a result of a Student Search.

Programs in WISEdata Portal collected for accountability purposes are: Special Education, Homeless, Food Service, Language Instruction Education, Section 504 Placement, Coordinated Early Intervening Services, Learning Modality, and Career and Technical Education. Non-academic data is connected to a program association, not a student section association.

Student CTE Program Association

Career education is unique from other programs in that it is collected at multiple levels-- both at the course level (academic) and at the program level (non-academic).

Career Education (non-academic) Program data, as it is displayed on the student detail screen in WISEdata Portal, emphasizes if the student is a CTE Concentrator or a CTE Participant.

This is important, as CTE Concentrators pertain to the Perkins V grant monies, and the very specific data reporting requirements for that grant money.

Career Education (CE) - Carl Perkins Districts program indicates a student's participation in CE program for Career and Technical Education (CTE) and College and Career Ready (CCR) Reporting. This reporting is required for districts that receive Carl Perkins funding.

Career Education data will only display for students who have/are enrolled in a Career Education Course.

WiSFiP Pupil Count: 5-Year-Old Blended or Challenge Academy

Screenshot of WISEdata Portal specific student details screen - 5-Yr-Old Blended or Challenge Academy.

When pertaining to the Pupil Count for Membership pilot program for the 22-23 / 23-24 school years:

  • Program Type: Only ‘Other’ should be entered into the WiSFiP membership application, and

  • Program Name: Only the program names to be used are ‘Challenge Academy’ or '5-year-old Blended'. For more information on the 5-year-old Blended kindergarten program visit the Pupil Count PI-1563 Student Categories page.

Data for students in Challenge Academy and 5-Year-Old-Blended Kindergarten programs are collected separately.

  1. Students in Challenge Academy: Currently in WISEdata, these students are reported, but DPI does not know if they are physically located on site at the Challenge Academy, or at school receiving instructions. LEA’s do not follow consistent practices in reporting these students. It is desirable and beneficial for all LEAs to standardize the data collecting process about Challenge Academy students.

    • Participating LEAs of the WiSFiP Pupil Count Membership Application Pilot Program during the 2022-23 school year, need to conduct the following steps to report Challenge Academy students as resident / attending districts:

      • Submit Challenge Academy enrollments to WISEdata.

      • Identify if students are enrolled in the Challenge Academy program through WiSFiP membership application by using Program Type - Other, and Program Name - Challenge Academy.

      • Doing this will allow the DPI to count the students under the pupil count of their resident district, and identify students who are in the Challenge Academy program. In future years the goal is for School Finance to completely rely on WISEdata to get the Challenge Academy students list through the WiSFiP Membership application.

      • For more information about Challenge Academy, refer to the SFS Challenge Academy webpage, and the Uncommon WISEdata Situations webpage for students receiving off-site services.

  2. Students in 5-year-old Blended programs: 5-yr-old Blended kindergarten programs are referred to as such because either a.) the structure of the full-year program varies from the first semester to the second semester,or b.) the structure of the weekly program varies from day to day. Districts who have blended kindergarten programs will be asked a series of questions in the reporting model to accurately determine membership based on the number of students enrolled who are aged 5 on or before September 1 of the current school year – OR – students enrolled who are aged 5 and admitted under Wis. Stat. §120.12 (25).

    • Participating LEAs of the WiSFiP Pupil Count Membership Application Pilot Program during the 2022-23 school year, need to conduct the following steps to report these students as residents of/attending their districts:

      • Submit 5-yr-old Blended enrollments to WISEdata.

      • Identify if students are enrolled in 5-yr-old Blended program through WiSFiP membership application by using Program Type – Other, and Program Name – 5 yr old Blended.

      • Doing this will allow DPI to count students under the pupil count of their resident district, and identify students who are in a 5-yr-old Blended program. In future years the goal is for School Finance to completely rely on WISEdata to get 5-yr-old Blended students listed through the WiSFiP Membership application.

    1. For more information on the 5-year0old Blended program, please visit the SFS page on Pupil Count Student Categories.
