SEEDS4Schools Data Sharing with WISEdata Data Enhancements

  • In the 2017-18 school year, SEEDS4Schools became Ed-Fi compliant and can share special education data, for your district, directly from SEEDS4Schools rather than from your district’s student information system sending it. The data is sent real time, which means when the data is updated in SEEDS4Schools, a sSEPA (student Special Education Program Associations) record is sent from SEEDS4Schools to WISEdata. The below SEEDS4Schools fields are included in the sSEPA record:

    • WISEid
    • Birthdate
    • sSEPA Begin Date
    • sSEPA End Date
    • IEP Implementation Date (IEP/Service Plan Implementation)
    • IEP End Date (IEP/Service Plan End)
    • Last Eval Date
    • FAPE School​
    • Special Education Setting (Education Environment)
    • Private School status
    • Primary and Secondary Disability(s)
  • Updates in 2018-19 include SEPA data showing a green checkmark when the data in SEEDS4Schools matches what is in WISEdata. When data in SEEDS4Schools does not match what is in WISEdata, it shows in red.
  • Access the SEEDS4Schools WISEdata articles for more information regarding sharing special education data in SEEDS4Schools with WISEdata.
