Now more than ever, high-quality data must be used to answer critical policy questions and support policies and laws, such as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), that promote the education of children. The journey from the development of questions and/or metrics to a usable form of data need not be difficult to navigate. Learn about the DC Staffing Data Collaborative approach and how using Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) Connect, the Equitable Access Support Network can provide states the analysis plan to address critical questions about equitable access to teachers so staff can communicate with their IT personnel. This session will demonstrate how you can replicate this process for your questions/metrics.
