Assignment Code List

Use the Assignment Code List to find all valid position and area assignment codes and their reporting requirements for the current school year. Each assignment indicates whether a DPI license is required, whether a contract is required, and which assignment-related questions must be answered for the assignment. DPI is working on adding descriptions for all assignments which can be used to find a position/area code combination that's right for each of your agency's staff positions. Use the list to gather the appropriate data for all staff assignments prior to uploading or entering them into WISEstaff. You may also view this information on the WISEstaff Data Collection page - look in the Technical Documentation section.

Update Contact Info

This is step 1a of the Staff Collection Checklist. Be sure to update your district's contact information for staff who upload and maintain assignment and contract data for your agency's staff. Each district must have a primary and secondary contact who are responsible for maintaining WISEstaff data. This step should be completed as soon as the new school year is open around mid-August each year. Keeping contact information current is important to ensure that DPI messages and system updates are delivered to the appropriate staff within your district.
