The state is now implementing the second phase of Idaho's longitudinal data system (the Idaho System for Educational Excellence, or ISEE), which will give every classroom teacher and building principal access to the statewide instructional management system known as Schoolnet.
Through Schoolnet (ISEE phase 2), teachers have instant access to current, accurate data on academic achievement and tools to streamline processes in the classroom.
With this system, teachers now can access deconstructed standards, develop lesson plans, share best practices with other teachers in their district and statewide, and create assessments. In addition, teachers will be able to analyze student progress at the end of a class or throughout the school year to individualize instruction and improve lesson plans, as needed.
Thanks to a $21 million grant from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, the staff in all public schools and districts currently have access to Schoolnet right now. After completing a short registration process, all teachers and staff can use Schoolnet to review standards, create lesson plans, share lesson plans and ideas, and access digital content.
In six pilot districts across the state – Cassia County, Lake Pend Oreille, Meridian, New Plymouth, Richfield, Sugar-Salem, and North Star Charter School – teachers also are able to use Schoolnet this year to create assessments in their school or classroom. These same assessment tools will be available statewide to additional schools and districts in the coming year through a competitive application process. The grant allowing access to the full suite of school functionality was made available in November 2011. To learn more or to download the district application, visit www.studentscomefirst.org.
To access Schoolnet right now, a teacher simply needs to create an ISEE account and request a Schoolnet role from their security administrator. Registration is a straightforward process. To create a new user account, please follow these steps:
