New CWCS Users


You must be individually authorized to use the CWCS. Having a Wisconsin User ID (WAMS ID) is necessary but does not in itself provide access to the CWCS Web application. For security and privacy reasons, access must be specifically authorized by your District Administrator (Superintendent) on behalf of your school board or by the Superintendent's appointed WSLS/ISES Administrator.


For further information about gaining access, see the Delegated Authority Web Application.

The CWCS collection creates common data standards for all districts and schools; ensures high quality data by eliminating variations in how data are collected across various systems. When collected at the state level, student level data sets, including the CWCS can give smaller districts access to robust systems, through a partnership with DPI that they could not afford on their own. This ensures the same high level of service for all districts, schools and students.


IMPORTANT: CWCS records must have matching records in the Wisconsin Student Number Locator System (WSLS). Failure to keep WSLS complete and current will cause CWCS file upload failure. It will not be possible to submit CWCS data online without matching WSLS records.
