State Education Department Launches Parent Dashboard

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has launched a Parent Dashboard to increase transparency and make information about school performance and other school-level data easier for parents and the public to access, Interim Commissioner Betty A. Rosa announced on October 29. The Parent Dashboard features a clean, simple design to better provide parents with information about their child’s school.

“Our ESSA plan contains strategies to improve equity, and one of those strategies is to provide data to parents in a way that is most useful to them through the Parent Dashboard,” said Board of Regents Vice Chancellor T. Andrew Brown. “The Parent Dashboard provides parents with the information necessary to be effective advocates for their children, helping them to achieve educational success.”
