Example text

Governance will define a common standard to be followed by all parties to the SLDS, insuring an interoperable system. When we use the term data standard, three different types of data standards are encompassed in this definition as it applies to an SLDS. One type of data standard involves the data definition and code set for a certain data element—a simple definition of what is represented in a certain data element. ”6 A second type of data standard involves the technical specifications or attribute, a definition that would be useful to those engineering the SLDS and providing technical criteria and requirements, as well as methods and processes for data.

Solutions such as a secure technical processing environment that meets the Family Educational Record Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act T h e S LD S L a n d s c a p e ◂ 27 (HIPAA) restrictions for data privacy and role-based access for stakeholders and researchers enable states to address the security concerns of their stakeholding agencies as well as laws that apply to their data. Data Collection and Integration Challenges Traditionally, state departments of education have made investments in student information systems, finance systems and human resource management systems that aren’t compatible, consolidated or easily integrated with one another.

Each has something to gain from the data in the SLDS, which can impact their roles significantly. Chapter 10 makes the case for including out-of-school time and health-care data in the SLDS in order to give a fuller picture of the student. These nonacademic factors can impact a student’s success in school, and including them in the data set gives educators a chance to better understand and address these outside factors. Additionally, as more states get their SLDSs established and functional with educational data, the shift to focusing on expansion will mean more states will move to incorporate data from additional sources that give a fuller picture of the student.
