Initial Synergy upload information

The Maine Department of Education (DOE) has published initial code sets and data file layouts with definitions for the new state level student information system for the 2017-18 school year. These documents can be found at:  http://maine.gov/doe/data/student/Synergy_upload.html

The change in code sets is in preparation for future interoperability implementations. Please continue to check back to this site frequently, as we will be adding sample files and additional documents for Career and Technical Education (CTE), Behavior, Truancy, and Proficiency-Based Education data sets.

In addition to the new code sets and uploads, Maine DOE has also changed school and district ids. More information regarding this and a list of codes for the 2016-17 schools can be found at:  https://mainedoenews.net/2017/05/16/changes-to-school-and-district-ids-for-2017-18-school-year/

In late June, an updated list for 2017-18, including codes for new schools and districts may will be located at: http://maine.gov/doe/data/infrastructure/index.html
