Dashboard Survey

Parent Dashboard Survey

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is developing a Parent Dashboard to increase transparency and make information about school performance and other school-level data easier for parents and the public to access. This is part of New York's ESSA plan.

NYSED is gathering feedback from parents and stakeholders to guide the work of developing the Parent Dashboard. Please encourage parents to complete our five-minute survey and tell us how we can make the Parent Dashboard as useful as possible.

NYSED will use feedback from the survey to identify the data that is most useful to parents and the public. Informational resources in English and Spanish are available on our Parent Dashboard web page. Translations of the survey and resources in other languages will be posted as they become available. If you have any questions, please email us at
