ISBE Update

ISBE_Featured_Content.pngISBE Discontinuing Reporting Outside SIS

Last year, the Illinois State Board of Education added student attendance to the Student Information System (SIS). At the time, ISBE was collecting attendance and attendance-related data across three systems in at least seven different data fields (not including SIS). ISBE is proud to announce that going forward, attendance will only be collected in SIS. The Districts ADA/Prior GSA Claim, e-Report Card data collection, and End of Year report collection will be discontinued.  Districts will not submit data in those collection systems for School Year 2018-19. Districts are required to submit attendance data for SY 2018-19 in SIS.
