SD Department of Education Sept. 2016  

Accurate data matters: Check out these upcoming trainings
The Department of Education, in conjunction with Infinite Campus, is offering the annual Fall User Group training sessions. These sessions are opportunities for district staff to learn about updates to Infinite Campus, hear about new state reporting requirements and network with peers from across the state.

Never has the accuracy of your district’s data been more important. The data in the Infinite Campus system is used by the South Dakota Department of Education for many purposes including:
  • Calculating districts’ State Aid allotment
  • Calculating districts’ Special Education State Aid allotment
  • Calculating districts’ Title III funding
  • Creating pre-id labels and assigning students in the online assessment systems for districts
  • Populating other systems such as SDMyLife, eMetric, SD-STARS and Perkins
  • Computing attendance, graduation rates, completer rates, dropout identification, etc. for district and school Accountability Report Cards
  • Data requests from the executive and legislative branches of state government
  • General data requests
  • Federal reporting through EdFacts and the Consolidated State Performance Report
  • Complying with requirements for the Federal Perkins Loan Teacher Cancellation program
There is no cost to attend this training. Attendees should bring their laptops because they will be able to work in their live production site. Participants are on their own for lunch. To register, please complete the online registration form.
