K12 Data Governance

K-12 Data Governance is a work group that oversees the development and implementation of a K-12 education data system for financial, student, and educator data. The work group was established by the 2009 Legislature.

The data system is meant to serve requirements for teachers, parents, superintendents, school boards, OSPI, the legislature, and the public.

Learn more about the data system's objectives and the work group's duties.

Data Governance membership includes representatives from school districts, data users, and statewide organizations. Meeting agendas and materials are accessible online.

The Data Governance Group maintains a Policy and Procedure Manual that outlines the data governance system for establishing data management priorities and data quality practices.

The work group is to be periodically reviewed and monitored by the Educational Data Center and the Legislative Evaluation and Accountability Program Committee.
