Major Outcomes:

The D.C. Longitudinal Data System will have four critical steps that must occur in order to resolve the technological, planning, and governance deficiencies currently hampering progress in the District:
  • We must refine, implement, and monitor a series of data policies that ensures the use and portability of unique student identifiers no matter which LEA a student chooses to attend in the District of Columbia.
  • Once those policies are in place and implemented, the SEA can put into practice a data warehouse solution to integrate the student information systems of the District's component LEAs. This will allow the SEA and LEAs to track mobility, truancy, and improve allocation of resources from a holistic perspective.
  • Once the student information systems have been integrated into the data warehouse, the District can link assessment and evaluation systems to the warehouse to conduct longitudinal analyses for program evaluation and value-added study.
  • Once the student information systems and assessment and evaluation systems have been integrated, the state would expand the linkages with the other systems to start populating the data warehouse with for example, special education, free and reduced lunch, OST data, and begin critical linkages to align Pk-12 data with postsecondary education.
