The passage of the "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001"  increased accountability and reporting requirements regarding student academic achievement. In order to better respond to these and other federal and state reporting requirements, ISBE and the IBM Corporation are in the process of developing and implementing a state-level student information system. Through the project students will be assigned a unique identification number. All data to and from the state will use that unique identifier. The use of individual student records will:

  • increase the state's capacity to follow a student's progress over time;
  • provide better quality data to drive more enlightened policy decisions resulting in enhanced educational opportunities for all children;
  • reduce data collection burden on schools and districts; and
  • enhance the use and relevance of state data by districts and schools.​

 Early Childhood SIS Data Elements Webinar

We received a number of requests for training that is specific to Early Childhood during our summer statewide Student Information Systems (SIS) training. Many of our Early Childhood partners participated in the statewide training and felt that a webinar focused on just Early Childhood would be very beneficial.

In response to your requests, we have scheduled an Early Childhood webinar. The webinar will be conducted on Monday, October 2, 2017, from 2-4 p.m. Please register below.

What: A focused review of Early Childhood data elements as presented during the summer SIS training.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the call.

This webinar will focus on the Early Childhood information presented in the statewide SIS training this summer, along with any updates or modifications since then.

The webinar will be recorded so those who cannot attend may go back and view it at their leisure. However, we encourage your attendance and participation since there will be an interactive Q&A session during the last 15 minutes of the webinar.
