Developing a State Education Data System

California K–12 education is developing a new, powerful data system that will allow for much better tracking of student progress and better analysis of education programs. Questions remain about its long-term use and structure, however. This briefing provides an opportunity to learn about similar student data systems in use in Texas and Florida—how they deal with data management and quality issues, student privacy concerns, data accessibility, and ways to identify programs that improve student achievement.
This event is co-sponsored with The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the California Research Bureau. A light breakfast will be provided and there is no charge to attend.
