District Application Information

Background

We have five regional data hubs up and running across the state of Michigan. There are a few steps to get your district onto the data hub for your region which we call the onboarding process. Once you are integrated with the data hubs, you will begin to be able to take advantage of third-party integrations, data quality reporting, dashboards, single sign-on (SSO) capabilities, and state reporting capabilities as they are completed and approved.  The Michigan Data Hubs platform is continuously improving and expanding over time.

Process to Apply

All 5 regional data hub locations (Copper Country ISD, Kalamazoo RESA, Kent ISD, Oakland Schools, and Wexford-Missaukee ISD) are fully functional and we have existing SIS connectors for Edupoint Synergy, MISTAR, PowerSchool, Skyward and SunGard eSchoolPlus.  We provide trainings and webinars throughout the year to support district integration with the Data Hubs.

Start the process by clicking the button below to sign-up.

 

Once you have signed up, the next steps will include:

Complete Data Hosting Agreement. This is where your district gives official approval to joining and agrees to the hosting terms. We are working to make this an electronic process.

Data Hub Support Specialist (DHSS) Assigned.  We are working to put in place support personnel who will be able to assist you in the onboarding process. The DHSS will specialize in the SIS that you use and will be trained in how to properly configure that system.The DHSS will also be able to assist you in configuring our cockpit application.

Complete Systems Inventory and Integration Status information.  This information is important for an ROI study being completed, but is also helpful in guiding which systems we will integrated for the project.  

System Configuration. DHSS and District complete SIS and cockpit configuration and verify that data is flowing.

Data Quality Verification. District and DHSS will utilize reports to verify that the data in the data hub is an accurate reflection of the data from the SIS for the district.

Usage of Approved Third-Party Integrations. Once the data is verified to be flowing and accurate, the district may begin to use any and all third-party integrations approved by the Data Integration Advisory Committee.

Usage of Additional Data Hub Capabilities. Once the above items are in place, the district will be able to utilize additional functionality of the data hubs as it is in-place and approved. That functionality may include as developed:

  1. Newly developed integration routines
  2. Dashboards and reports
  3. Single Sign-On and Identity Management
  4. State Reporting
  5. Electronic Records Requests (Transcripts, CA-60 data, etc.)
  6. Any new uses that are identified and approved
