LEA Access to Integrated GaDOE Systems
Over the last several years at the request of Georgia’s LEAs, Technology Services has worked to integrate key functions of all GaDOE departments into one comprehensive statewide solution that can be accessed through the LEA’s existing student information system. This has been accomplished by enhancing Georgia’s Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) – both by creating new applications to add to the SLDS tunnel, and by adding new features and functionality to existing SLDS applications. Various Governance Boards and Advisory Groups (composed of LEA employees) work with Technology Services to ensure that the applications within the SLDS tunnel provide an easily accessible, complete system of information for all stakeholders, including students, parents, teachers, principals, and other LEA staff.
