The DDE is an automated process to create and maintain student rosters, classes, and teacher accounts in CLI Engage. Note: we are currently processing requests for DDEs on a first-come, first-served basis. The process takes some time to set-up. We appreciate your interest in the DDE.
DDE Requirements for CLI Engage
This process can be illustrated as follows:
By using the DDE process, districts can provide enrollment data to CLI on a daily basis. Existing files will be replaced and the DDE process will be run once a day with the following logic:
a) Only Homeroom Classes will be created.
b) Only Students enrolled in a Homeroom Class will be created.
c) Before scheduling the DDE automated process, existing Teachers, Classes, and Students may need to be updated with any new or missing Internal ID.
d) Since Students cannot be created without an existing Class, it can take up to 2 days or cycles to create a new set of Class-Students.
e) Any updated information provided on the data files will be updated in CLI Engage, such as names, DOB, grade level, State Unique ID, etc.
