From Compliance to Service: Evolving the State Role to Support District Data Efforts to Improve Student Achievement
Shah, Rebecca
Data Quality Campaign
As a result of state, national and federal leadership and political will, states have dramatically increased their capacity to collect robust longitudinal education data. However, without an equally ambitious effort to ensure access and build stakeholders' capacity to use data to increase student achievement, these infrastructure investments cannot be fully realized. Because districts are the agents that directly affect teaching and learning, states cannot succeed in this evolution in policy and practice unless they actively engage their districts. This engagement requires state education agencies to evolve from their traditional role of primarily ensuring compliance with state and federal laws to a new role as service providers that meet the diverse needs of all districts in the state. Appended are: (1) 10 State Actions to Ensure Effective Data Use; (2) How Is Your State Supporting Local Data Use?; and (3) Promising State Practices. (Contains 25 endnotes.) [This paper was written with support from David Goldstein. For "From Compliance to Service: Evolving the State Role to Support District Data Efforts to Improve Student Achievement. Summary," see ED535226.]
