The Office of State Superintendent of Education’s (OSSE) new LEA Data Mapping application replaces the Excel data collection template that LEAs have historically used to inform OSSE of where required data fields exist within the LEA student information system (SIS) and the option values for data elements within the required data collections. Features in the LEA Data Mapping application include the ability for LEAs to update mappings as needed and inform OSSE of changes in real-time, create a historic log of any changes to the data mappings (mappings history), and export information to view a summary of the data mappings for all data collections.
The LEA Data Mapping application user guide provides LEA Data Mapping Administrators with instructions for using the new LEA Data Mapping application. LEAs may continue to use the Excel data collection template as a reference to review detailed mapping definitions for each of the required fields. The webinar recording provides a tour of the application, a review of the application’s features, and examples for how to complete the data mappings within the application. If you or your LEA have any questions, please contact your dedicated OSSE liaison.
