The Conference will include training and business meetings for state CCD and EDFacts data coordinators. In addition, there will be a range of informative sessions targeted toward interests in “101” introductory sessions, data collection and management, data dissemination, data linking beyond K-12, data privacy, data standards/quality, data usage, and finance, as well as information about changes in how the U.S. Department of Education collects and uses data.

This year, the Data Conference will offer more than 80 presentations, demonstrations, and workshops conducted by practitioners from K-12 information systems.
