School Staffing Project

Monday, April 4, 2011, 2:12 pm

The School Staffing project is reviewing approaches to collecting educator and course data from the districts.  Various agents are being evaluated for the transmission of data between applications for efficiency and accuracy.   

The OPI received one response to the Request for Proposal (RFP) that was issued for the new teacher preparation and educator licensure information system.  This response has been evaluated and the OPI is moving forward with contract negotiations.  

The pilot project for the collection of salary and benefits data from two Montana-based vendors has received two data files - the 2009-2010 end of year file and the 2010-2011 preliminary file of data.  The data is being reviewed by the OPI.   

Since School Staffing data will reside in the Data Warehouse, a partnership has been established to understand this project's requirements for a successful direction.
