The Wisconsin DPI uses the WISEdata portal to collect information from your school and Ed-Fi is the mechanism that makes the sharing of that data possible. On the "Administrator Options" page in jmc Office, update a few of the Ed-Fi settings to enable WISEdata access to your jmc database and submit your data to the DPI.
In jmc Office, head to the File > Administrator Options page and click the "Ed-Fi Settings" link in the "Ed-Fi Settings" box to configure Ed-Fi settings for WISEdata submissions.
Step One: Place a checkmark in the "Enable Ed-Fi Interchanges" checkbox to turn on the Ed-Fi integration.
Step Two: Place a checkmark in the "Enable Creating & Posting of Ed-Fi Special Education (SSEPA & SSEPEA) Resources" checkbox to allow WISEdata access to special education student information such as programs, entry dates, and exit dates.
