Student Data Collection

Collecting information at both the student and program level is necessary for public, state and federal reporting and funding as well as school feedback reports. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Kansas Student Data Privacy Act (SDPA) both provide parameters for what is permissible when sharing student information and KSDE has implemented strict data governance guidelines and processes to protect the privacy of every student and to ensure the confidentiality and security of all data collected and managed. Schools are required to report only data necessary to support state and federal funding/reporting. KSDE obtains some student level data from other sources in order to provide value-added feedback to educators and schools
