Welcome to the WISEdash for Districts Training and User Guides page


This page provides users of all levels with 'How-To' guides, tutorial videos, and other resources to better help you navigate, analyze and make use of the WISEdash for Districts dashboard systems.

artifactNOTE on Transition of Training Materials:

The training materials located on this page are going through an ‘upgrade process’ to align with the release of the new WISEdash for Districts dashboard design. We anticipate that all training materials will be revised and ready by the end of September for the 2023-24 school year.

Webpages to Replace Google Drive and Google Slides

In order to meet a number of improvements (such as better Accessibility, quicker turn-around time on updates, and providing content in a unified format), training materials are now going to be created as webpages. Formerly all training materials were created as Google Slides that can be located on the Shared Google Drive. This shared Google Drive is linked on the Welcome screen on WISEdash for Districts. This Shared Google Drive will remain in place until all training materials have been updated.

  • Google Slides training materials that ARE UPDATED: will be listed and hyperlinked on a Google Doc titled, "UPDATED for New WISEdash Design!"
  • Google Slides training materials that have not yet been updated will remain linked to those slides until they are replaced by their webpage equivalent.
  • When all Slides have transitioned to webpages, the Shared Google Drive will no longer be linked.
  • Materials that were available on the Shared Google Drive will still all be posted on this webpage. Scroll down to the 'accordion' widget. Expanding each section of the widget will display training materials within that section.
