An Update From the Indiana Department of Education for July 22, 2022

DOE Header

A Message from Dr. Katie Jenner

Katie Jenner Headshot

Over the past week, I’ve received a number of messages about…Get Your Teach On (GYTO)! Many of you have likely heard of it…and if not, check it out! This is a professional development experience that comes highly requested by Indiana teachers (we hear you…and agree!).  And, it’s about time we bring Hope and Wade King (and their GYTO team) to Indiana.

We are the first state to link arms with the GYTO crew…to bring their conferences, workshops, and training sessions, open to every Hoosier educator, and together, focus on the Science of Reading, STEM, and elevating our difference-making educator profession.

Over the past decade, I have actually been to their classroom, and I still vividly remember the first time I witnessed the passion and true power of their teaching. The students were not only actively engaged in the learning process, but they were filled with passion and purpose…driving their own student learning and celebrating their peers’ academic and skill development along the way too. That is the first time that I personally became a Hope and Wade fan…they are teachers who love kids and who believe we have to be intentionally focused, keep the expectations very high for all children, and break the mold of “how it’s always been” to “what learning CAN be.”

Our paths recently crossed again in January at the Extra Yard for Teachers Summit in Indianapolis, and seeing the joy and passion on the faces of the educators in the room that day, I knew it was an experience that we needed to bring to every Indiana educator. With that…the idea to join forces was born…and Indiana became the first state ever to partner with GYTO.


This partnership consists of three main components: professional development for educators, professional development for building leadership, and intensive support for select schools via in-school training.

Educator conferences
Last week, we hosted the first two (of four total) educator conferences in Muncie and Brownsburg. Over 500 teachers came together for two days of workshops and training sessions. These mini, educator-centric conferences were designed to ignite educators’ passion for teaching and focus on how we can keep improving for our students.

Nearly 800 educators have registered for the final two conferences taking place today in Crown Point and next week in Columbus. If you have not had a chance to attend one of these conferences, there is still time to register!

Leadership conferences
We will also offer four free one-day mini Get Your Lead On conferences in September geared toward our principals, assistant principals, instructional coaches, and more. Registration and location information is coming soon, but in the meantime, mark Wednesday, September 13, Friday, September 15, Wednesday, September 20, and Friday, September 22 on your calendars!

In-school trainings
In addition to the educator and leadership conferences, eight Indiana schools will also receive intensive support throughout the school year through in-school training. These trainings will provide quarterly professional development experiences on the school’s campus and will include guided instructional walkthroughs with GYTO leadership and school administrators, as well as a custom school acceleration plan.

I am so excited by this partnership, and I hope you are able to take advantage (or have already taken advantage!) of some of the opportunities above. We’ll also be continuing this partnership through 2024, providing multiple opportunities to join in on the fun and certainly, learn a lot through the experience! Together, we can continue to support and elevate the educator profession, and through partnerships like this one, we will continue to do all we can to create and support networks where you can share ideas, information, and best practices that benefit our students.

Whether the GYTO events or another learning opportunity, thank you for taking the time out of your summer to grow and expand your knowledge and development. And, as always, thank you for all you do for our students!

Office of Information Technology

NEW: Data Exchange - The Data Reporting Source of Truth

The 2022-2023 school year establishes Data Exchange as the source of truth for all data reporting. IDOE will transition identities as the source of truth to Data Exchange in late fall/early winter. At the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year, all school personnel numbers (SPN) and student test numbers (STN) will continue to be created in the STN Application Center and will be available in Data Exchange the following day. Data Exchange resources:

  • Data Exchange webpage
  • Data Exchange training can be found in the Data Exchange Training and Community course in Moodle (no enrollment key required). 
  • Data Exchange Knowledge Hub is for those completing manual upload templates, rather than connecting via a student information system (SIS).

Questions about Data Exchange may be submitted here.


NEW: School Actions to Complete SIS Setup for 2022-2023

Schools with an Indiana Ed-Fi Certified SIS Vendor will need to establish a connection between their SIS and Data Exchange. At the beginning of the school year, schools should be actively validating and reviewing data in Data Exchange for accuracy in preparation for the first September certification window.

  • A SIS vendor certification status list can be found here
  • Schools changing SIS vendors should send vendor changes to

Additional information on implementation of Data Exchange can be found on the Data Exchange webpage. Questions about Data Exchange may be submitted here.


NEW: Designation of Security Coordinators

The LINK Portal is able to recognize all public, charter, and accredited non-public schools’ local Google G-Suite or Microsoft 365 accounts. IDOE configures the organization’s leader as the first account, and then this person logs in to designate up to two security coordinators, who are responsible for overseeing the setup of roles for others in the organization. All superintendents and leaders of non-public schools should log in to the LINK Portal and review/update their security coordinator information.

  • Instructions for organization leaders on how to designate/update the security coordinators can be found here
  • New public and Choice schools setup of the LINK Portal can be found here
  • If you are a new superintendent or the organization leader of a non-public school and need the first account configured, please email


NEW: Designation of Key Contacts

Security coordinators for all traditional public, charter, and accredited non-public schools are responsible for making sure that their organization’s key contacts for the 2022-2023 school year are set. These include contacts such as principal, superintendent, financial contact, special education director, and Data Exchange contact, among others. 

  • Security coordinator instructions can be found here
  • INview displays the superintendent for corporations/charters as well as the principal of each school.
  • ICHAMP (Indiana Complaint, Hearings, and Mediation Process) will utilize the following LINK Portal key contacts: superintendent and special education director. It is essential that these two key contacts are reviewed by security coordinators and updated based on any necessary changes. 
  • The corporation test coordinator official designation remains within DOEOnline for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Questions may be directed to


REMINDER: Graduation Rate

As a reminder, graduation rates for the 2022 school year will be based on data certified by schools in July 2022 and October 2022. Some schools expressed concern about the graduation data in the Data Exchange July certification window, which just closed. The graduation rate will be compiled from the graduate data submitted through Data Exchange for the 2021-2022 school year (July 2022 certification) and the graduate data submitted through Data Exchange for the October 2022 certification. Schools will be able to update their graduation records through the end of September 2022. This means any students who were not submitted as graduates by the July 2022 certification can be submitted in the 2023 school year (October 2022). IDOE understands the critical nature of a school’s graduation rate and is offering this as an additional clarification. Questions about Data Exchange may be submitted here.


REMINDER: SIS Vendor Changes

IDOE-issued Data Exchange credentials (key and secret) are tied to the supporting SIS vendor. If your corporation will be changing or adding an SIS vendor for the 2022-2023 school year, please email with these changes. Your organization will receive a new set of credentials for your new vendor.

Office of School and Community Nutrition

NEW: Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) Benefits

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) Division of Family Resources recently issued Summer 2022 P-EBT benefits. Eligible students were pulled from IDOE’s Data Exchange under the criteria of all free or reduced lunch eligible students enrolled as of Saturday, May 1, who had not been reported as moving out of state before the end of the school year. This list included all students enrolled in Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) schools. Only students identified as free or reduced qualifying in Data Exchange are eligible for P-EBT benefits. Households that have current cards should see benefits added to the card as of Monday, July 18. FSSA’s online system has been overwhelmed by the number of requests for new or replacement cards and is experiencing delays in response times. Response time is currently around two weeks from the date of initial submission. FSSA has requested that once a household has completed the request online, they do not complete a duplicate request.

How schools can communicate with households about P-EBT:

  • Remind households that have current cards that benefits should be loaded as of Monday, July 18.
  • Guide those who need to submit a new or replacement card request to FSSA’s P-EBT webpage.
  • Assure households that have completed the FSSA online form that there is a delay of around two weeks in the response time for online requests. 
  • Encourage households to only submit one request in the online portal to reduce the overall number of requests.
  • Remind households that only students who qualified for free or reduced price meals and were identified as such in a data submission or attended a CEP school will receive P-EBT Benefits.

Corporations with questions about the data used for their school(s) can submit a request to the IDOE Data Reporting Help Desk.


REMINDER: The Keep Kids Fed Act (KKFA)

Last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) communicated plans to implement the provisions of the KKFA to state agencies. The waiver extensions apply to Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and Seamless Summer Option (SSO) operations only and are not applicable to school meal programs. Per USDA, to use these flexibilities, SFSP and SSO operators must contact IDOE for approval and provide any necessary information needed to complete reporting requirements. Flexibilities are only allowed to be implemented with prior approval from the sponsor’s assigned field specialist.

  1. Child Nutrition Response #107 - Extend Area Eligibility Waivers for Summer 2022 Operations
  2. Child Nutrition Response #111 - Non-Congregate Feeding for Summer 2022 Operations

REMINDER: Return to Traditional Meal Eligibility

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, school corporations have been operating with the use of a federal waiver that allowed meals to be fed to every child free of charge through the end of school year (SY) 2021-2022. The use of this waiver will not be available during SY 2022-2023. Corporations will return to the traditional eligibility requirements for free and reduced and paid meals. Corporations that are not approved for or are awaiting approval for community eligibility provision (CEP) in SY 2022-2023 must plan to distribute and process meal benefit applications.
