  1. Allow District-to-District transfer of students

    Districts could send/request students based on WISEid by flagging them for transfer and an accept/reject process. This would help avoid data errors and duplicate data entry.

    • Cumbersome process to add multiple person names

      The CSV upload allows only for one alternate name. As we are making this initial loads, we have several staff with multiple names. Our only options are to load multiple files to get all names or do some work by hand. We may decide to only enter the 2 names.

      • Develop better match criteria for students with two last names

        Students with two last names are frequently duplicated. Some districts might have used one or the other last name instead of both. Other districts might have last names in a different order. Another district might put a dash between two last names while another might use a space. Better matching criteria would help eliminate duplicates.

        Please work on a way to help identify students with two last names correctly in WISEid.

        • Download files of WISEids should provide Educator Entity/File Number for licensed persons

          To provide additional "Hard" matches for importing WISEid files into the school Districts HR or SIS systems, the Educator File Number should be provided on Persons that have them.

          This could help import data in a number of situations. a specific example is where a district has separate HR and SIS software packages that do not share a local id (Employee or Payroll Number) across them. When either system could generate a state report including Educators, the WISEid will need to be loaded into both systems. DPI is recommending that the HR system be the system of record for managing…

          • Updating a person should only be done by districts with a Local_Row_key Association

            Changing (updating or editing) a persons Name, DOB, and Gender would only be editable by users from districts that have established a relationship with that person.

            • Updating a person should be done by an active district and require confirmations from other active districts via inbox messaging

              Updating a person should be done by an active district and require confirmations from other active districts via inbox messaging.

              Active reporting districts should be able to update any information, but it should be held in limbo until all other active districts with conflicting information "Accept" these changes via a home screen message in an inbox within the application. - no calling unless to remind someone to go into the app and accept changes

              DPI then has ability to override, but no need to manage individual changes.

              • 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.
