Empowering Parents with Data: Ensuring Parents Have Data to Make Informed Choices. Data for Action
Data Quality Campaign
States can use their resources, including technical expertise and financial support, to provide vital data to help parents make informed decisions about their children's education. Accessible, tailored, and easy-to-understand data can help parents answer questions about their children's education such as, "Is my child on track to graduate college and career ready?" and "How does my child's school compare to other schools so that I can make the best choice about my child's education?" Information about their own children's progress in school over time helps parents establish expectations, have meaningful conversations with their children's teachers, and take action to support their children's success. "Empowering Parents with Data: Ensuring Parents Have Data to Make Informed Choices" provides information on steps states have taken to provide parents with vital information as well as highlights Metro Nashville Public Schools, a district with a strong parents engagement strategy, exemplifying the kinds of district practices states can support.
