KSIS Data Standards

Published: 6/12/2024 2:38 PM
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This page provides guidance to help school districts with data standardization and data quality in the Kentucky Student Information System (KSIS)/Infinite Campus.​​​​​​​​
​As the department responds to various reporting requirements and longitudinal data is shared between systems, it is important to ensure data is consistently entered statewide. Specific data elements must be collected to ensure that information is available for federal and state reporting, and other data sharing. Data standards document requirements for data entry in the Infinite Campus/KSIS. 
Data standardization is the process of making all data of the same type or class conform to an established convention or procedure to ensure consistency and comparability across different databases. This is especially important and necessary in a data warehouse environment that contains information from many sources. Without data standardization, no relationship can be established between the various data sources to produce reports that include information from multiple data sets within the data warehouse.
If you need assistance entering or understanding a data element, contact the data steward noted within the relative data standard document listed. Click the data standard name to open the document. The data standard revised date is in parenthesis.
