Directory Administration

What is Directory Administration?

Directory Administration provides an efficient mechanism via the web for district and school staff to update and maintain information (e.g. principal's name, mailing address, programs offered) with the Department.

Directory Administration allows one central depository for district and school level data and provides an efficient mode for maintaining and updating educational information between the Department and targeted school administrators, legislators, municipal leaders and others.

In the past, the Department has relied on various paper forms to provide updated district profiles and personnel changes. Now districts can view, add, update and delete their own district and school information over the web. Another function of the Directory Administration application will be to create a single-source security portal for all web-accessed programs in the Department. The security of the Student Information Management System data such as State Identifiers (SASIDs) and the transmission of all data elements are integrated within Directory Administration.
