Guide to Collecting and Reporting Federal Data

image of data guide
This Guide serves as a resource for managing the collection and submission of high quality data that meets federal requirements. While primarily designed to meet the needs of State Coordinators for Homeless Education and EDFacts Coordinators, local liaisons may also find the Guide helpful in completing data reports required by their State Educational Agencies. The Guide includes:
  • a list of all the information school districts and states are required to report,
  • a table to help liaisons and state coordinators assess data quality,
  • sample comments states can submit with data, and
  • information to help plan for future collections.
