Build the Louisiana Education Data Repository System (LEDRS) :
Creation of a data repository that will centralize and link the data that currently reside in isolated silos.
Creation of a data reporting system that will enable the LDOE to automate its EdFacts reporting and provide tools for routine and rapid ad hoc reporting.
Training of LDOE technical staff will be a crucial component of making this project sustainable. We will expect our vendor to take on a majority of the initial setup and configuration of the data repository and reporting modules, however all future enhancements must be internally managed and maintained and so proper training is essential.
Creation of three new systems that will track homeless students, Section 504 students, and critical student performance measures.
Section 504 Students.
Critical Student Performance Measures.
Training in the new applications (Section 504, Homeless, Student Performance, and reporting tools) will be handled by LDOE staff.
