MOSIS Ed-Fi Update



DESE recently announced they’re updating MOSIS to integrate with Ed-Fi. We have been aware of the changes for some time and are working with DESE to be compliant with the new system in their proposed timeline. We’re very familiar with Ed-Fi and have worked with them in other states. We believe supporting this transition will mostly center around training our customers to use the new tools. Right now, no action is necessary by our customers.


Around October 2023, some LEA’s will be asked to pilot the new state reporting solution prior to the rollout in 2024. If you are asked to pilot, please reach out to us at so we can walk you through the new process.


As we get closer to rollout, we’ll release knowledge base articles and hold webinars and training to walk customers through the new workflows. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.


If you did not receive the email from DESE, please see the excerpt below:



“The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has begun the process of integrating Ed-Fi, a near real-time collection system, with the MOSIS Data Collection System. DESE currently collects data in six cycles, once every two months. Ed-Fi will work with local education agency (LEA) student information systems (SIS) to provide data directly to DESE using interoperability technology.


DESE plans to pilot this process with a small group of LEAs in October 2023. Once the pilot is complete, DESE will roll out the new collection system to the remaining LEAs over the course of 2024. Full implementation of this technology is planned for the fourth quarter of 2024, with a live transition planned for the 2025-26 school year…

Common Goal Systems has a long history of building solutions that make it easy to meet state reporting requirements. We look forward to the opportunity to do it again with this new generation of tools in Missouri.
