Over the past 21 years, a state education agency has partnered annually with NCES to bring local, state, and national data professionals together to learn from one another in an informal setting. This year, the MIS Conference offered more than 80 presentations, demonstrations, and workshops conducted by practitioners from K-12 information systems.
The major focus of this MIS conference was on data use, data standards, statewide data systems, and data quality.
