IMPORTANT UPDATE: MiDataHub Ed-Fi 3.1 - v6.2 Upgrade

After careful consideration and collaboration with our Student Information System partners and development teams, MiDataHub has decided to adjust the go-live date of the 6.2 environment to Monday, August 5, 2024. This decision will allow us additional time to refine the upgrade before its official launch. We believe this extra time is crucial to ensure a smooth transition for the performance requirements we expect for all users.


WHAT THIS MEANS FOR DISTRICTS:

  • If your district has generated a 24-25 ODS, it will be upgraded by the process.
  • If your district has not generated a 24-25 ODS, one will be generated during the upgrade.
  • MSDS processing will continue through the 3.1 environment until the August rollout. 
  • 23g MiKidsBackOnTrack Initiative - no district uploads may be sent until after the 6.2 go-live update is complete.


WHAT THIS MEANS FOR VENDOR PARTNERS:

  • Vendor certification will continue throughout July as necessary. 
  • Sandboxes and district staging instances are available for vendor use. As we continue our deployment in staging, there will be periodic updates and outages.


Thank you for your understanding and continued support as we work towards enhancing the Michigan DataHub experience. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or require further information.
