The guide, a short one-page document, provides:
- An explanation of what education data is
- Examples of what data ESSA requires states and schools districts to collect and report
- Questions to ask your school and district leaders about education data, how it is used, and how it can help you support your child
- Information about how education can and can’t be used and who can access it
Be sure to read and share the Parent Resource on Education Data. PTAs should also consider working with their school or district to put on a workshop to help families understand education data and how they can use it to support their child’s education.
