Vendor Spotlight Follow Up
This week we had our first of a series of Vendor Spotlights. Symbaloo shared their commitment to Michigan by offering a free pilot to the first 9 districts that sign up! In addition, they have included free but mandatory PD for teachers in the districts that are going to give this integration a go! Please send an email to support@midatahub.org if you want to join the pilot or need more information.
Eidex
Prior Year Data Request
As districts continue to configure the Eidex API integrations we are starting to see an increased amount of requests from districts (per Eidex) to roster past years data (16-17 and even 15-16). By default these ODS are not currently configured in your Data Hub Cockpit. To enable past years ODS you will need to request that through submitting a ticket to the helpdesk at support@midatahub.org . Please make sure your current SIS tool is enabled to send the previous years prior to configuring the system. If you have any questions please reach out to us at support@midatahub.org .

Data Hub Participation
Over 50% of students and 40% of districts are now live on the DataHub! With the most recent addition of districts in MiDataHub, we have now passed the halfway point on total number of students in the state that are represented in the system live. We are also at an even 40% of districts now. There is much more work to go, but because to the efforts of many across the state, progress is being made!
