Introduction: Brian Dennis, State Director, LA

    • Grant awarded to aid the rebuilding of education and children’s services following Hurricane Katrina.

A word on student data

A Word on Student Data

Current year SISdata made available by DOE (Only Publics)

Current year STS data made available by DOE (Publics & Non-Publics)

SIS Data

STS Data


(Option 2)

(Option 1)

Goal: Load the broadest amount of current demographic, enrollment and academic performance data into LouisianaConnect at the earliest possible date.

What’s Next: ACT Data, Standardized Test Scores from DOE (EOC, LEAP, etc.), ???

Important next steps

Important Next Steps

  • Automated Account Activation

    • Counselors are signing up now for access to the portal

  • Student & Parent Account Activation

    • LOSFA will send a follow-up email indicating that student & parent account activation is available beginning in the next few weeks

    • The web portal needs student data to be tested and loaded for student/parent account activation to commence

    • LDOE has finalized an agreement to share data with the web portal

  • Non-Public School Student & Parent Account Activation

    • If school does not submit “SIS” data, enrollment data will not be current until LDOE February “STS” data harvest

    • LOSFA to circulate workaround for schools that would like to refresh enrollment data by extracting directly from their own student information system and loading directly into LouisianaConnect
