• The Educational Data Leader provides oversight and support to districts in the areas of Data Coaching and Analysis, Data Management, and Data Verification. MORIC staff will assist the district in establishing data teams, defining and implementing data standards, identifying data sources and gaps, fulfilling state reporting requirements, understanding the tools and resources available, and presenting meaningful data to promote and enhance data driven instruction.

    This is a comprehensive service that focuses on data accuracy, timeliness, and the use of various forms of data.
