Return to Learn Update
We would like to thank all of the districts who utilized the Michigan Data Hub to compute their aggregated data for the Return to Learn project. We had an overwhelming response with 705 districts that planned to report through MiDataHub. It was a very busy end of June and early July working to ensure that all districts completed the needed steps. Most districts have completed that work and the data team at the Michigan Education Data Center are working to create the aggregated data on behalf of each district. As that is available, we will place a copy in each district’s secure folder in the cockpit application and send an email with instructions on how to access that. As specified in legislation, those results will be compiled and only the aggregated data will be forwarded to CEPI and MDE for reporting. We will also provide updates in future newsletters.

The use of MiDataHub for Return to Learn fueled a significant increase in data flow as well. With the addition of the MSDS General Collection file import, numerous districts were able to populate MiDataHub that had never been able to before. Final stats on the 2020-21 school year indicated that 828 districts were live (populated) with over 1.49 Million students. That is very quickly approaching our goal of 100% adoption. 

Will 2021-2022 be the year we reach that goal?
We are beginning to ready the MiDataHub cockpit application for the 2021-22 school year, and are pleased to announce that there are no major changes in the system for this year, so we anticipate a much smoother start to the school year. We are updating some descriptors, which are the lookup values that your SIS systems map to in order to provide common data. Those updates should make the mapping much simpler for districts by eliminating duplicate values, which caused confusion. We anticipate having those descriptors in place and the 2021-22 operational data stores (ODSs - or district databases) created by Monday, August 2nd so you can begin populating with your SIS systems. If you have a need to start sooner, you can create your 2021-22 ODS by using the Utilities>ODS Management tool to create the 2021-2022 ODS. Alternatively, you can send an email to support@midatahub.org and we will complete that for you. YouTube Video with step-by-step instructions. 
OneRoster API Rollover
The OneRoster API is year specific, and most likely points to the 2020-2021 school year. Once your data is publishing for the 2021-2022 school year, you will want to make sure to increment the school year on your OneRoster integrations. If you need assistance with this step, please email us at support@midatahub.org.
