Our School Data/IGOR
Kent ISD has developed a data warehouse for the purpose of improving student achievement. Our School Data contains all state assessments and data for over eighty districts across seven ISDs/RESAs.
Data warehousing is a valuable, proven approach to providing educators at all levels of an organization with the information needed to make high impact decisions. Kent's data warehouse contains data from PowerSchool, Michigan assessment systems (MEAP, MME, ELPA, M-STEP and ACT), business data systems and others. Users access the secure portal via the internet to run reports and queries.

Maintaining Confidentiality and Security of Student Data
To protect the privacy of students and their families, school staff are legally and ethically responsible for safeguarding the information collected about and from their students. Schools, school districts, and state education agencies maintain and use personal information for a variety of educational purposes while in school. Rights for students and parents and requirements for local education agencies are many and complex under the Family Educational Records and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Health Insurance Portability and Access Act (HIPAA).
