Student Reporting in Iowa


On this page...

Student Reporting in Iowa is the Iowa Department of Education's initiative involving the transfer of individual student records. The mission of the project is to reduce data burden and encourage better decision-making by establishing and maintaining a cost effective method of accessing and transferring accurate and timely education information among school districts, postsecondary institutions, and the Iowa Department of Education.

Underlying principles of the project include a commitment toward reduction of paper-based state reporting, building on existing technologies available to schools, a commitment toward the elimination of paper-based college transcripts, the adoption of a common basis for facilitating meaningful information exchange, and greater security of confidential student information.

Information for Vendors

  • Extract meets DE quality assurance standards through testing with predetermined outcomes
  • Import the State Student IDs
