DQC Comments on ESSA Proposed Regulations on Accountability, State Plans, and Data Reporting

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) preserves the most positive legacy of the No Child Left Behind era—more accurate and transparent data about the performance of all students—and helps states take their efforts to use data in support of student learning to the next level. The Data Quality Campaign (DQC) appreciates the opportunity to provide input on the Department of Education’s (ED) recent proposed regulations. While many facets of the proposed regulations should be celebrated, there are opportunities for ED to go further to help states and districts better share valuable information with families and the public, safeguard student privacy, and improve the quality of data used for decision making.
