2 Program Goals Vendor Development – Jan 8, 2014 Vendor Certification – May 1, 2014 Onboarding – EOY June 2014 Deployment - October 1, 2014 SIF Participation by all MA Districts State Facilitated SIS SaaS Deployed SIF v2.6/2.7 pre-migration to 3.1 Legacy Application Re-Architecture Further enhance District and State interoperability effectiveness through improved technology deployment, realizing long term processing efficiency with reduced operational and application support costs.

3 SIF Program 2013 Foundation The MA SIF Program 2013 was a rebaseline for the previous initiative and chartered to implement lessons learned during the October 2012 SIF Project rollout. The MA SIF Program 2013 was initiated on January 2, 2013 and operational on November 30, To date we have 27% of our Race To The Top (RTTT) districts on- line with SIF. The standards, policies and procedures established from this initiative were designed to be rolled forward for all future annual SIF Program infrastructure, data element, and subscribing application enhancements

4 SIF Program 2013 Deliverables SIF Program Repeatable Process Agent Vendor Certification Web Site Requirements Test Scripts and Sites established Documentation District Process Real-time event driven verses scheduled batch file uploads Real-time local data validations implemented Error Reports available 24/ days a year Real-time State EDWIN Data Warehouse reports updates Dedicated District SIF support and on-boarding teams District On-Boarding Vendor Specific District User Guides District Best Practices Established District Pre-Validation Tools SIF District Dashboard

5 District Focused SIF Documentation Enhanced SIF Reporting Guide designed in conjunction with District Vendor and specifically targeted to seamlessly integrate with current SIS application documentation.  Includes Best Practices Data Quality Validation Checklist designed to assist Districts and Schools verify data for SIF compliance prior to on-boarding with State.

8 SIF Program 2013 Deliverables SIF Applications Student Information Management System (SIMS) Student Course Schedule (SCS) Education Personnel Information Management System (EPIMS) Student Claiming and Un-claiming SIF Integrations EDWIN Teaching and Learning (IIS via Thinkgate) EDWIN Analytics (Longitudinal Data System - LDS) MA Data Collections Applications SIF Architecture and POC Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Validations (1000+ rules) Real-time Event Driven Push Mode Level 3 Authentication & Level 4 Encryption

10 Team Resources Team Resources are incremental, scalable, and available as needed. ESE Data Collections New State Test Environments DevQAStaging Districts IT Support and outside services Agent Vendors ESE Data Quality

11 SIF Firsts:  MA is first State to require a real-time district initiated push model  MA is first State to require level 3 authentication and level 4 encryption  MA is the first State to wrap the SIF certification requirement with its own vendor certification program. o Assists vendors to get their agents and SIS working properly, so that data is pre-validated in real-time reducing everyone’s operational support costs. o Vendors are rated and listed on State website  MA is first State to implement a two-way, push mode, load balanced ZIS implementation  MA is first State to implement a near real time, cross-object data quality checking and feedback loop  MA is first State to provide district focused SIF /SIS documentation and provide a support team dedicated to assist them in cleaning up their data and on-boarding.  MA was first to implement a Statewide COTS SIF solution doing the work mostly by itself (Training and Support from the COTS supplier)
