An Update From the Indiana Department of Education for July 29, 2022

DOE Header

A Message from Dr. Katie Jenner

Katie Jenner Headshot

What a month! While schools have officially been “out for summer,” students, educators, families, and communities have been hard at work throughout July. This has included intentional summer learning for our students, with many camps and summer programs bringing our schools and communities together like we’ve never seen before.

And, as you well know, student learning isn’t the only thing that’s been heating up. Our educators (including many of you!) have been participating in a wide range of training, seminars, and workshops promoting both personal and professional development.

This has included (...but certainly not limited to!) - 

  • Three Connection Point Summits across the state, focused on fostering comprehensive conversations among local school leaders to share promising practices and replicable models for attracting, preparing, and retaining Indiana’s educators;
  • As we highlighted last week…four mini, educator-centric conferences available for all Indiana teachers through a first-of-its-kind partnership with Get Your Teach On;
  • 12 statewide Summer of Learning conferences have connected educators with innovative, technology-enhanced pedagogy related to accelerated learning, STEM, literacy, digital learning, and more. Two more conferences are still scheduled in St. Joseph County next week;
  • We partnered with the Indiana Arts Commission to bring 80 Indiana educators from 20 schools across the state together with teaching artists to participate in the Arts Integration Learning Labs and help spark creative approaches for integrating art across students’ learning;
  • Hundreds of Indiana educators came together in late June to celebrate Computer Science Professional Development Week to continue building their knowledge, skills, and network to support rigorous computer science education for all Indiana students;
  • The launch of our new Student Outcomes Collaborative, which will serve as a sounding board for ongoing and future work focused on improving outcomes for our students who are still overcoming challenges posed by the pandemic, as well as students who were underperforming prior to the pandemic, including Black and Hispanic students; and
  • The launch of ongoing training for Indiana’s new STEM and literacy coaches and school leaders (over 100!), who will support research-based instructional training for educators in nearly 70 schools across the state.

Today, I want to share with you an update from our previously mentioned STEM and literacy coaches as they look ahead to the start of the school year in just a few short days and weeks. These coaches will provide key support for our K-2 teachers in delivering research-based support in reading instruction…and our grade 4-8 teachers in STEM instruction. 

The urgency of this work has never been more clear. As an analysis of recent assessment data shows, while learning is stabilizing or recovering for many students, other students are still struggling. We must continue to aggressively and intentionally deploy innovative solutions for our students to support their learning. With this motivation as a driving force, earlier this month IDOE brought more than 100 school leaders and new instructional coaches together for the first full week of training – which, as you’ll see from the pictures, generated a lot of energy…and a lot of post-it notes.

STEM-Lit Coaching

Together, the instructional coaches and school leaders dove into the Science of Reading and evidence-based STEM practices. But in addition to content, ample time was also devoted to the art of coaching. Educators left the training with a greater understanding of their role as instructional coaches and the essential role they will play for their schools, but most importantly, for our students.

Cherish Rochford, one literacy coach who will be serving educators at Adams Elementary in Fort Wayne, had this to share about the experience: “The new approach of support provided by this project will build a community of educators who support one another in the effort to grow strong readers. A great take away for me is that what is necessary for one is beneficial for all.”

Equipped with this new toolkit, Ms. Rochford and her fellow coaches and leaders will provide a running start on literacy and/or STEM instruction in schools across the state. Thank you to everyone who participated in the first step of this important, ongoing training. Our STEM and literacy coaches will receive continued training throughout the school year, as they continue to support and empower educators within their buildings. I look forward to updating you throughout the year on the successes and progress of this work…and the impact it sparks for our students.

Thank you, as always, for your leadership and commitment to driving success for all Indiana students.

Office of Information Technology

REMINDER: 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.


REMINDER: 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.


REMINDER: 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


REMINDER: 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.

REMINDER: 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.
