Data Warehousing in Education

Schools collect pertinent information from multiple sources to drive instruction and meet specific Federal and State-level requirements. The information collected ranges from student attendance and enrollment records to class grades and credits, program participation and funding, testing, staff assignments and certifications, professional development, budgets, and more. An education data warehouse integrates and consolidates this information -- otherwise dispersed across the enterprise -- ensuring data integrity and applying data quality and validation checks to preserve confidence in the reliability of the data. It also feeds the information to data-driven applications such as analysis and reporting tools and data dashboards used by all education stakeholders, including administrators at all levels, teachers, counselors, support staff, students, parents, and legislators.
