Data and Accountability

Data & Accountability

The Department collects a wide range of data to help improve teaching and learning in Massachusetts schools.

The state also uses school and student data to inform our accountability system, which targets resources and assistance where they are needed most.

This section of our website includes student-, school-, and district-level data, as well as information on our accountability system, laws, and regulations.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) includes provisions to help ensure improved outcomes for all students receiving federal elementary and secondary education funding. ESE submitted its plan to the U.S. Department of Education on April 3, 2017.
