Data Pipeline Interchanges


The data pipeline interchanges are designed to accept student submission year around. There are six interchanges: Special Education Discipline, Special Education IEP, Staff, Student, the Teacher Student Data Link, and Title 1 The snapshots, typically thought of as collections, pull student information from these interchanges which decreases the redundancies in reporting data and allows for data to be cleaned on a more frequent basis.
