Using the Ed-Fi standard to improve data quality for ISEE state reporting
The West Ada School District was awarded a grant from the Micheal and Susan Dell Foundation to implement an ED-FI operational data store (ODS) and data quality system (DQS) to identify, in real-time, student data that does not conform to ISEE business rules. West Ada will discuss the Ed-Fi standard and how they are using the ODS and DQS technology to streamline ISEE state reporting by improving data quality at the source system level. 

ED-FI (https://www.ed-fi.org/) is a license free technology that could help your organization with interoperability and other data integration challenges. 

Session will include representatives from the ED-FI Alliance (https://www.ed-fi.org/), DoubleLine - the vendor implementing the technical aspects of the grant, and state of idaho.
