YOU WANT FULL FOCUS ON STUDENT LEARNING.

But if your educators don’t have accurate, useful, and timely information, then they may not be able to prioritize what’s most important in their classrooms. You can empower your teachers and students with the information they need to do their best.

We’re here to help you get there.

The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation is dedicated to improving education outcomes by supporting teachers, students and parents in making the best decisions for success.

But how can educators be expected to make those decisions without the right data to inform them?

The Ed-Fi Alliance, funded by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, provides free technology to seamlessly and securely connect educational data systems.

In an era where technology is becoming pervasive in the classroom, the Ed-Fi technology and data standard can connect the dots between the data solutions your districts use and provide meaningful information to those who need it. By working directly with districts and vendors across the country, we help implement secure and sustainable technologies that make student data more accessible.

If you’re a district administrator whose current data systems just aren’t working, we want to hear from you.

CALL FOR DISTRICT RESPONSE

We are seeking to fund and support school districts, district collaboratives and charter management organizations across the country in implementing the Ed-Fi technology and data standard to improve data quality and accessibility. To get the full picture of student learning, data from disparate data systems must be brought together.

Strong candidates must be committed to utilizing the Ed-Fi data standard to make data work for teachers, students and parents.

We will consider responses from all districts, charter management organizations or collaboratives with at least 10,000 students.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO...

Efficiently and securely integrate data across multiple tools.

Enable the secure storage of all student information in one central place.

Provide high-quality, accurate data to the tools you use to share data with educators.

Empower students and parents with access to the right data at the right time.

DATA STANDARDS IN ACTION

See how the Ed-Fi technology helps Tulsa Public Schools bring all data together into a centralized repository to provide educators or administrators more complete student information.

Check out how Brooklyn Lab School built a tool using the Ed-Fi technology to enable teachers to use real-time data to personalize instruction for students.

Learn how the Ed-Fi technology supports data hubs so that educators can easily exchange data – saving teachers time, improving data quality and reducing data integration costs.
