The State Assessment Exemption Request (SAER) window, for the WY-TOPP  Summative Assessment, opened February 1 and closes April 29.  Prior to using the new SAER system, users who will be submitting an exemption request to the WDE will need to be assigned with the “SAER User” role.  If you need the SAER User role assigned, please contact your district's WyEd Administrator for assistance.

The confidential Credits Earned - Grade Nine Non-Alternative Schools report, has been refreshed with the recently submitted 2017-18 WDE949 transcripts. Please review the report for your district.

The review period will be re-opened from February 4-15.

Also, the confidential Credits Earned - Grade Nine, Ten and Eleven Alternative Schools reports is available to review as well. Please note that alternative schools are required to submit student transcripts for grades 9, 10, and 11, on the WDE949.

Are you missing a student or staff WISER ID?  

Now there is a way to manually retrieve individual WISER IDs for students or staff. Using the WISER ID system, your district's WISER ID Administrators are now able to retrieve WISER IDs for those who already have an ID assigned. To retrieve a WISER ID, WISER ID Administrators will need the following information:

  • First and Last name
  • Date of Birth
  • Gender, as listed on the WISER ID request (male/female/unknown)

Note:  In order to retrieve a WISER ID, all of the required information, listed above, must be a 100 percent match to what is in the WyEd database. If a WISER ID is not returned, WISER ID Administrators will need to  retrieve the ID by submitting a WISER ID Request.
