The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will be hosting the 2021 WISEdata Conference completely virtual. The conference will present attendees with a better understanding of state and federal reporting requirements, including any updates and changes for the 2021-22 school year, as well as provide attendees with information related to new features and functionality in WISE applications.
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.
