SED launches parent dashboard

By Eric D. Randall

A Parent Dashboard is now available on the website of the State Education Department, which is asking school districts to publicize it.

SED is asking schools and school districts to:

  • Place a link on their websites by Monday, Nov. 30.
  • Send a letter prepared by SED to students’ parents and guardians. The letter includes an online feedback survey available in 17 languages.
  • Post SED-created graphics and news items about the dashboard on school and district’s social channels.
The Parent Dashboard will address a federal requirement that all state and local agencies receiving Title I funding provide the public with an annual report card evaluating school performance and progress. The dashboard supplements School Report Cards that are also available on SED’s website.

"The New York State Education Department (SED) has developed a Parent Dashboard to meet these requirements in a way that is informative and user-friendly for parents and the public," according to Rose LeRoy, SED’s director of educational data and research. "With this dashboard, SED aims to provide a resource that is truly valuable and will serve as a model for other states."

Creating a Parent Dashboard was part of SED’s plan to comply with the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, which emphasizes equity in education for all students and expands measures of school accountability and student success.

ED began outreach to parents and other stakeholders to guide the work of developing the Parent Dashboard in 2019. This year, SED plans to gather additional feedback from parents and stakeholders "to guide further enhancements."
