Data Systems


Data Pipeline is Live!

On Monday, July 1, 2013, CDE successfully launched Data Pipeline with the first three collections: Student IDs, Educator IDs and Directory. The remaining collections will go live on Sept. 1.

The launch of Data Pipeline is the culmination of an 18-month process. We appreciate the tremendous effort that went in to making this first launch successful. From the Pipeline Project Team developing the system, to the LEA’s participating in pilots, to the vendors for making all the file layout changes so quickly, thank you for your support, feedback and assistance throughout the year.

Over the summer we will continue to provide updates through the weekly town hall webinars, work to fix any issues found during the pilot and develop further enhancements. The Student Interchange, Student October and Finance collection will be our primary focus in preparation for the Sept. 1 launch.
