Click Here to View All Recorded Sessions from the 9th Annual WISEdata Conference

Below, please find the slide decks made available to you before the conference. This is not a comprehensive posting, as not all sessions at this year's conference are posted here. Why not, you might ask? This year's conference offers more than just presentations! By viewing the printables listed above (agenda-at-a-glance and the program), you will see we're offering open-labs, help desks, and panel discussions. These sessions will not have slide decks posted on this webpage since the content is being delivered live. Additionally, some of the presentations are being hosted by persons outside of the DPI. These sessions will not be posted  or recorded. Slide decks are being posted in a Microsoft PowerPoint Read Only format.

Reserving a Room

SOLD OUT: State Rate Rooms at the Kalahari

All rooms in the WISEdata Conference block of rooms at the Kalahari at the government rate are currently sold out. 

  • You can decide to book a room at the Kalahari at their set rates. If you do, remember that the Kalahari is cashless!
  • You can also decide to ask neighboring hotels if they will honor the state rate of $98 since your lodging is related to your professional development. Hotels will likely require evidence (ID badge, etc.) of your employment as a State employee or as an educator.

Kalahari Rules and Guidelines About Reservation Cancelations

the Kalahari cancelation policy described below is the same for all group guests:

  • If the room is canceled more than 72 hours before the arrival time, a $30 fee will be charged.
  • If the room is canceled less than 72 hours before the arrival time, the fee charged will be equal to one night's lodging at the booked rate.

  • In the event of inclement/emergency weather, this will be looked into at the time.
  • NOTE! The Kalahari is cashless!

Conference Mission


The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction hosts an Annual WISEdata Conference. The conference will present attendees with a better understanding of state and federal reporting requirements, including any updates and changes for the current 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).

Target Audience


The target audience includes any person with responsibility for collecting, maintaining, reporting, or certifying data at any level within the school district. This includes any person who:

  • works for a local education agency (e.g., SEA, district- and school-level administrators, any school staff...)
  • supports the work of a local education agency (e.g., WISEdata certified vendors, involved citizens, school board members...)

If you see yourself reflected on the WISE landing page, Resources by Role section, chances are high that the WISEdata Conference has something of interest for you!
