Once a WISEid generated it should never be invalid
Districts should not need to delete or update a WISEid that is merged with other records. Both IDs should remain valid so that school staff are no longer concerned with getting lists of WISEids to change from DPI.
This would not eliminate all manual updates as splitting an improperly matched WISEid would still require at least one district to update its records. However the local_row_key could be used to assist in those scenarios.
We don’t require you to update the deactivated WISEid in the WISEid system. If you search by it or attempt to update it you will get the active WiSEid to make changes. However, WISEdata Collections system does require you to update the WISEid if the person is in the current year’s collections. In WISEid we recommend at least updating current students and staff to the latest update and have reports to find these. However, its not a requirement for the WISEid system to function.
