ED's Proposed Changes to SFSF Data Collection and Reporting Requirements: DQC's Submitted Comments
Data Quality Campaign
This letter is submitted to comment on the U.S. Department of Education's (ED) proposed revisions to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's (ARRA) State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF), as published in the September 23, 2011, Federal Register. Overall, the Data Quality Campaign believes the proposed changes strike a sensible balance: they maintain a commitment to advancing states' efforts to collect and use data for continuous improvement and richer accountability while making adjustments that reflect states' realities on the ground. The proposed changes would give states the flexibility and time to ensure their data systems and reported metrics are high quality and useful to stakeholders. They also provide an opportunity for federal policymakers to further align federal policies, and for states to further leverage federal funding opportunities to address critical data capacity needs.
