How is Education Data Used?
The use of data helps guide parents, teachers, schools, districts and state leaders as we work together to improve student achievement so all children graduate ready for college and career. While using data effectively to guide improvement in instruction and student achievement, the Colorado Department of Education and St. Vrain Valley School District takes seriously its moral and legal responsibility to protect student privacy and ensure data confidentiality.
St.Vrain’s annual FERPA notification to parents is included in the St. Vrain Behavioral Codebook
