Student Information System (SIS)
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.
2015 ISBE Student Information System Training
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) will be conducting summer training sessions designed for NEW SIS users. Attendees will only need to attend one training session.
The training session will include an overview of SIS and how it is integrated with other systems at the Illinois State board of Education. Areas of focus will include timely submissions, data quality, and the use of the SIS dashboard and reports.
