Enhance GTID Process

This project would expand the implementation of the student GTID (Georgia Testing ID) as the unique student identifier and improve the assignment, linkage, transfer, and use of the GTID.
This project will include:

  • Development of GTID as unique student ID - refine the matching (fuzzy logic) to increase effectiveness of match to eliminate duplicates. (SEA)
  • Electronic claiming (SEA & LEA – SIS involved) – web-based, manual, "do it now” option or auto extract daily. With the new system, once a student is claimed, the records will follow within 24 hours, eliminating duplicate data entry. Up to 1/3 of a class can be transient students.
  • Upload of data into SIS (SEA & LEA – SIS involved)
  • Transfer of transient student records (SEA & LEA – SIS involved)

The Georgia Department of Education is beginning to use a tunnel as part of its data infrastructure to enable its school districts to have faster access to the full range of data and analytic tools housed in its data warehouse. The three TSDL districts will be included in this summer's tunnel roll-out, and their longitudinal data systems will link to the state warehouse with a focus on (1) increased availability of TSDL data and (2) ways to build on the GTID project.

The SEA and LEAs will study and refine the roster verification options, including but not limited to, the Louisiana roster verification approach and Battelle for Kids model. The Georgia review will build on the incorporation of roster verification within the state's data systems' attendance functions. The project will research the options, define Georgia requirements, select the recommended methodology, and develop an implementation plan including costs and the resources needed.
