Event Details

The imperative to use data to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the education system has never been greater. Efforts to use data must be accompanied by strong policies and practices to protect the privacy, security and confidentiality of student data. This requires strategic and deliberate action by stakeholders at all levels and positions of the education system.

Join the Data Quality Campaign on April 28, 2011 at a national event in Washington, DC to discuss critical issues related to protecting the privacy, security and confidentiality of student data, developments in state and federal policy, best practices and emerging solutions, and remaining challenges.
