State Information Dashboard launch

The following is excerpted from a release from Michael J. Thompson, PhD; Deputy State Superintendent Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

DPI, in partnership with the CESA Statewide Network (CSN), is excited to begin the statewide rollout of the Wisconsin Information System for Education Dashboard (WISEdash)!

The roll out is proceeding incrementally with the goal of maximizing the chances of a successful implementation. We are rolling out one or two CESA regions each week for the next two months.

Week of:
September 10 – CESA 1
September 17 – CESA 2
September 24 – CESAs 3 and 4
October 1 – CESA 5
October 8 – CESA 6
October 15 – CESAs 7 and 8
October 22 – CESA 9
October 29 – CESA 11
November 5 – CESAs 10 and 12

To facilitate a success statewide launch, CESAs are identifying districts with a history of and demonstrated capacity for leveraging data in their decision making processes. Focusing on an initial cohort of districts allows us to create a user community that can help each other as new districts come on line over the course of the school year.

Two attachments are included for your reference, one which is an overview of WISEdash and the other about how to gain access to WISEdash. In addition, here are some frequently asked questions and links to more resources. Please share this information with appropriate staff in your district.
