Oregon Department of Education

The (KIDS) Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 16 (PK-16) Integrated Data System began with a goal to provide seamless and efficient student record sharing statewide to get the information in the hands of teachers and educators as soon as possible so all students can achieve their full potential. The project developed comprehensive data systems encompassing the entire Oregon Education System and became a cornerstone for the Alder project.

Throughout Oregon there are a significant number of data centers serving School and Education Service Districts, ranging from custom packages installed in only one district to systems serving dozens of districts.
