State Education Agency (SEA)

K12 Data Collection and Management System

Your SEA data collection and management solution.

Other vendors consider a statewide student information system a state where every Local Education Agency (LEA) uses the same student information system. Still, they provide no system for the State Education Agency (SEA) to use and no uniform, real-time, transparent, and accurate method to collect and send data to their LEAs. In 2002, Infinite Campus created a new way for SEAs to collect, distribute, and manage K12 data statewide in real time. This system also allows LEAs to send student/staff information to one another and allows for cross site enrollments between LEAs. Over twenty years later, we continue to enhance this system every four weeks.

Advanced SEA Operational Data Store (ODS)

  • All years and all district data are available in real-time in one database. Annual data is not stored in separate databases and data is not overwritten as students move from one district to another.
  • The ODS stores unlimited historical student, staff, course, FRAM, human resource, behavior, attendance, grade, graduation, IEP, PLP, assessment, health, progress, program data and much more.
  • Provides an intuitive SEA GUI that allows easy navigation, searching and reporting.
  • The SEA ODS can easily transfer data to other third-party SEA systems by multiple different methods.
  • The SEA can create and use State Edition to facilitate advanced funding formulas, such as average daily attendance (ADA) and average daily membership (ADM). In addition, SEAs can use machine learning to predict student outcomes based on data pattern recognition across the state and nation. This allows for accurate and targeted at-risk funding models.  

Horizontal Bi-directional Data Flow

  • Real-time enrollment overlap detection, management and resolution tools.
  • Real-time cross-district enrollment. Staff can easily enroll students in available courses in other districts, and the grades and attendance information flow back to the home district in real-time for use on report cards and transcripts.
  • Student and staff local district to local district record transfers (demographic, census, transcripts, IEP, health, behavior, attendance, qualifications, employment data and much more).
  • Data import tools for local districts to streamline records transfers, reduce workload and ensure data accuracy.

Vertical Bi-directional Data Flow

SEAs can push the following items out (down) to their local districts in real-time:

  • Statewide announcements, notices, surveys and videos.
  • Generate, issue and manage unique student and staff identification numbers.
  • Custom SEA-created pages, tabs and fields.
  • Assessment results, statewide course masters, uniform chart of accounts, state education standards and much more.
  • Unlimited SEA created data validations, queries and filters to run against district data to ensure accuracy before district certification.

SEAs can pull in/up the following data from their local districts in real-time:

  • All K12 data that is required by law for the SEA to collect. Our SEA ODS supports hundreds of data objects.
  • SEAs can collect data in real-time or in data certification snapshots or a combination of both methods.
  • SEAs have the ability to resync data by district, school, object, etc., reducing and fixing errors in the SEA ODS.

Provides a transparent, timely and accurate data certification process where both the SEA and local districts use the same system to certify their data.
