The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will host a free conference at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center, Wisconsin Dells, WI, on March 12-13, 2020. The conference will be a full day March 12 and a half-day March 13. The mission is to present attendees with a better understanding of state and federal reporting requirements, including any updates and changes for the 2020-21 school year, as well as to provide attendees with information related to new features and functionality in WISE applications. Sessions will include demos, hands on labs, SIS vendor and user testimonials and input, and DPI staff guidance.
A primary goal of the conference is for DPI to listen to the reporting, analysis, and data usage needs of its attendees (e.g., school districts, public and Choice schools, and CESAs).
Any person (SEA, district- and school-level administrators, and any support staff) accountable for state and federal reporting related to funding, accountability, or education program management is encouraged to attend the conference. The target audience includes any person with responsibility for collecting, maintaining, reporting, or certifying data at any level within the school district.
