DPI Delegated Authority Web Application

Each District Administrator (Superintendent) or his/her appointed WSLS/ISES Administrator can use the Delegated Authority Web application to provide access to the Wisconsin Student Number Locator System (WSLS) or Individual Student Enrollment System (ISES). DPI will provide access to the Delegated Authority Web Application upon request. To initiate this request, the District Superintendent must first obtain a Wisconsin User ID and send this ID via a ticket to the 24x7 DPI Online Helpdesk Application.  Email messages should include the Superintendent's name, District name, and Wisconsin User ID and come from the Superintendent's email account. If at any time, the District Superintendent should leave the district or the position, the new District Superintendent should initiate a new request for access to the Delegated Authority Web Application.

(District Administrators, WSLS/ISES Administrators, and Assistant WSLS/ISES Administrators only)

 


NOTE: District staff must be individually authorized to access certain DPI Web applications including the WSLS and the ISES. Having a Wisconsin User ID is necessary but does not in itself provide access to these Web applications. 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. The Delegated Authority Web application is used to record that authorization.

Wisconsin Pupil Records Law
Under state and federal privacy laws, local school boards authorize staff access to student data on a need-to-know-basis as the work of the staff member requires. For more information about these requirements, see the Wisconsin Pupil Records Law and FERPA.
