Documents Instructors Should Obtain

The following documents are recommended as useful supplementary materials to have on hand for the Foundational Data Improvement Lessons. Which of them the instructor obtains will depend both on the availability of state- and district-specific documents and on the nature of the participants being trained (for example, whether they are all from one district or represent staff from multiple districts).

District Documents

State Documents

  • State data calendar/timeline
  • State data standards or data dictionary
  • State data audit reports and forms
