The 2009 MIS Conference was a concentrated 3 days of information about best practices, innovative ideas, current issues, and practical how-to advice about management information systems for K-12 education.
Co-sponsored by the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the MIS Conference brought together the people who work with information collection, management, transmittal, and reporting in school districts and state education agencies.
Over the past 22 years, a state education agency has partnered annually with NCES to bring local, state, and national data professionals together to learn from one another in an informal setting. This year, the MIS Conference offered more than 80 presentations, demonstrations, and workshops conducted by practitioners from K-12 information systems.
Participants were invited to attend the 2009 MIS Conference in Seattle, Washington and to submit a proposal for presenting a session that added to the conference's interest and usefulness. Topics were invited from all sources, but the major focus was on data use, data standards, statewide data systems, and data quality.
