WISEstaff Copy Forward Files
Copying forward files is an OPTIONAL step. This functionality is only used by districts that do not generate fresh Contract and Assignment files from their staffing system each year. Instead, they copy the data reported to DPI in previous years as their current year starting point. Files from previous school years may be copied to ensure data consistency. Use Copy Forward Files to begin working on the next school year's data.
