Montana's Statewide Longitudinal Data System

The OPI and Vexcel are working together as a team and are currently planning the formal project kick-off.  Although tentative, the formal kick-off meeting onsite with Vexcel will be held May 31 - June 3, 2011.  Progress is being made purchasing and setting up the necessary hardware for the data warehouse to reside.  The first data domain planned to be built is the "Assessment Domain".  The team is currently identifying what data we currently have available and how best to pull it together for analysis in the data warehouse.   Additionally, the GEMS Executive team is working towards a plan to include external stakeholders in the project decisions.  If you have interest in this project and would like to be part of a user stakeholder group please contact the GEMS Project Manager, Jamey Ereth.
