Information Services - Data Collection

Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF)

Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) Implementation:
The Department has received a 6 million dollar State Longitudinal Data Systems grant from the US Department of Education. Part of this grant will be used to introduce new technology to improve the data collection process. Over time the ESE will implement the School Interoperability Framework to already existing data collection systems and provide grant opportunities for local school districts to participate in the SIF initiative.

Commonwealth SIS SaaS District Pricing SchoolBrains

The Statewide SIS SaaS to begin on-boarding districts on July 1, 2014

The Executive Office of Education (EOE) in conjunction with Commonwealth Information Technology Division (ITD) and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has contracted with Aptium LLC (SchoolBrains) to deploy a web based Student Information System (SIS) in the Commonwealth's Springfield Data Center. SchoolBrains is a MA SIF and SIS Certified Vendor currently supporting a number of districts.

The web based Software as a Service (SaaS) model will allow even very small Districts to utilize a fully functional SIF enabled SIS for a very low annual Price Per Student (PPS) cost. The Statewide SIS SaaS contract is available to all small Districts with less than 5,000 students. Priority on-boarding and assistance will be provided to those Districts who do not have a current MA Certified SIS or SIF vendor.

The Commonwealth plans to post a second RFR in December 2014 or January 2015 for a Statewide SIS SaaS Solution for medium size districts (5001-10K) and a third RFR posting in December 2015 for large size districts with greater than 10,000 students.
