Submitting WISEdata at the beginning of the school year establishes your school, student, graduation and parent data with the Wisconsin DPI. The Start Year page in jmc directs you through each of the items that need completed at the start of the school year to successfully pass your information along to the state. Execute the tasks on each of the tabs on the Start Year page to submit your data to the WISEdata portal.
