DACE-SIS Support

2019-2021 DACE-SIS Comprehensive Support Plan: Review Copy

With Phase II beginning in January, the Division is putting additional processes in place to strengthen DACE-SIS implementation. The DACE-SIS Comprehensive Support Plan will proactively address: standardizing policies and procedures; communicating to key stakeholders in a timely and consistent manner; providing targeted, competency-based training; expanding DACE-SIS expertise at the school level; and improving data integrity protocols.
At its core, the DACE-SIS Comprehensive Support Plan creates a distributed training, support and feedback infrastructure which will be overseen by a DACE-SIS Specialist who will document policy, strengthen communications and serve as a liaison with our DACE-SIS stakeholders.
DACE-SIS Phase II, which will be rolled-out in sub-phases over the coming months and into next school year, includes new and innovative functions to strengthen student support systems, improve workflows and ultimately let us connect with our students in more meaningful ways.

Based on the level of complexity of the improvement request, it can take up to six months to procure funding and implement the programming changes.
