Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

Parent Dashboard

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) developed the Parent Dashboard to increase transparency and make information about school performance and other school-level data easier for parents and the public to access. The Parent Dashboard is part of New York’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan, which emphasizes equity in education for all students and expands measures of school accountability and student success. The Parent Dashboard provides parents with information about their child’s school and is available in addition to the New York State School Report Card on NYSED’s public data site. The Parent Dashboard offers information on all public schools including charter schools.

In 2019, NYSED gathered feedback from parents and stakeholders to guide the work of developing the Parent Dashboard. The data elements that parents ranked highest on the survey are available on the Parent Dashboard. In 2020, NYSED gathered additional feedback from parents and stakeholders to guide further enhancements to the Parent Dashboard.
