Archived School Staff: Salary, Position, & Demographic Reports

About the Archived School Staff Salary, Position, & Demographic Data:
Archived staff data was collected annually in the WISEstaff (previously PI-1202) data collection.  The WISEstaff (previously PI-1202) data collection is a point-in-time collection of all staff members in public schools as of the 3rd Friday of September and includes staff employment information, such as salary, benefits, and staff assignments for the entire year as known at that point in time.  All data contained in the following reports has been submitted to the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) by the agencies responsible for hiring the staff. On submission, these agencies approve the data as correct.

Data Errors and Errata

If data anomalies are found, please contact the hiring agency directly. To account for data errors after DPI has published the following reports, hiring agencies may send a data errata letter to the DPI for publication. DPI maintains a Data Errata after DPI Publication Page for these letters.  
  • School Staff: salary, position, and demographic data corrections will be located under the "Staff" heading.

** DPI implemented a new staff reporting system for the 2014-2015 school year. As with any new data system implementation, data reported through the system for both the 2014-2015 and the 2015-2016 carry a data cautionary advisory. DPI is working to improve data quality, and going forward, data users can expect to see continual improvement in data quality. This year’s 2016-2017 collection marks good progress towards improved data quality, as enhancements to data validations and data review methods have been implemented into the WISEstaff data collection.  For specific data cautions and information, please see the "about the data" tab within each data file. **

2016-17 and later years of data:

Are reported in the new Public staff reporting application

These files are a comprehensive record of all staff reported working in the Wisconsin K-12 Public School System during a regular school year. All public education agencies are included.

There are about 170,000 records in each year's file. Each record in the file represents one assignment. Staff persons may have more than one assignment, but they can be uniquely identified by ID number. Please note that Salary and Fringe (Employee Benefit) information is duplicated if a staff person has more than one assignment.

Each "All Staff" file is about 99.5 MB in size and is compressed in a self-extracting zip file.
After it is unzipped, the file produced is in plain text, fixed-column format.
Before unzipping, copy the executable file to your hard drive.
