Kansas State Department of Education Request for Data

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) strives to be as transparent as possible with the data collected.  We urge interested parties to first review the public reports via Data Central to determine whether the data you are seeking is available.  

Should the parameters of your data needs not be publicly available please use the data request form below.  All data requests must be reviewed by the Data Compliance Officer, General Counsel, and Data Governance Board.  KSDE’s goal is to fill data requests within 30 to 45 days, however, resource and data availability can affect this turnaround time.  You will be contacted within five (5) days of receipt of your data request for additional information or clarification, and to provide an internal tracking number if required.

KSDE may assess a pre-paid fee of $56.00 per hour spent by agency staff to complete data requests.  This includes the time to process the request, gather the raw data, make calculations, verify the accuracy of the data, and format the data as requested.  All data requests are processed in the order in which they are received.  You will be provided an estimate of the cost to fulfill your request once that determination has been made.

ALL STUDENT DATA WILL BE SUPPRESSED IN ORDER TO PROTECT STUDENT PRIVACY as required by FERPA and the Student Data Privacy Act. KSDE’s suppression policy is zeros (0) are shown and any count, 1-9, will be reflected as <10.  If any number in the row is suppressed the total is also suppressed.

When submitting a data request please consider the following:
•    Be as detailed as possible regarding the parameters of your request.
•    Multiple subgroups will increase suppression and decrease useable data.
•    Format your request, within the detailed description, to assist with readability and comprehension by KSDE staff.
•    Provide a valid email address and telephone number for follow-up by KSDE staff.
•    Should a specific form need to be completed please email the document to FP-DataRequest@ksde.org
•    Please include a sample should you need the data in a specific format.  This can be added to the detailed description or email the document to

Data requests requiring Data Governance Board approval must meet the following deadlines.  The Data Governance Board meets monthly.
