Clicking either the bar graph or the total number displayed will change your screen from the dashboard display to a table with student specific data.
Migrant data flows into the WISE systems automatically from the Wisconsin MEP database system, MIS2000. This data from MIS2000 is certified in our Wisconsin snapshots. This automatic flow has been in place since the 2020-21 school year. Prior to this year, migrant data was submitted through SIS vendor tools to WISEdata Portal.
Your SIS vendor tool has the capability to retrieve migrant status student data from WISEdata Portal and store it in your SIS. Contact your vendor to ask questions about how to do this, and to verify that your SIS tool is retrieving data on a regularly updated basis.
NOTE: An alert is present in WISEdata Portal when migrant students have been identified for your district. Students identified on MIS2000 appear in this sub-category because they have:
- An enrollment record submitted by the LEA and/or
- A certificate of eligibility submitted by DPI MEP Staff
Compare the student data presented in WISEdata Portal to the student data present in WISEdash for Districts for accurate and consistent reporting.
With migrant students identified and enrolled in the Migrant Education Program (MEP), LEAs should reach out to their School Nutrition Team to ensure that migrant students are obtaining free meals at school. More details can be found on the Economically Disadvantaged data element page, in the FAQ section, Use case #7. If you have other questions about providing access to students in a national school lunch program, please reach out to the DPI School Nutrition Team.
