State ID

Contact(s)

An unique statewide student identifier is required for every public school student in prekindergarten - 12th grade in Iowa. This identifier, called the Iowa Student State ID, is assigned by the Iowa Department of Education (DE) using the State ID System. The State ID facilitates data submission via Project EASIER.

Access to the State ID System is available to authorized personnel only through the Iowa Education Portal. Authorized personnel with building-level-only access must click on the drop-down box under their name in the upper-right-hand corner of the portal screen and select their building name.

An Excel spreadsheet that has the 1904 Date System box selected will automatically add 1 day and 4 years to a student’s date of birth (or any other date). This shift in the date is difficult to notice because it is made instantly. It doesn’t matter whether the correct date is entered by hand or copied and pasted into the spreadsheet. The above guide will help you fix this issue in your Excel documents.
