Data Gateway

Utah's Educational Data Gateway is a resource provided by the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) that allows the public and school personnel to access education-related data. The USBE uses data to analyze student performance and inform educational improvements at the policy, state board, and classroom level.

Accountability and transparency in education data is important for parents and the community as a tool to help inform decisions about their student's educational choices. The reports found here in the Data Gateway are designed as a tool to provide that information to help concerned individuals see the results of the measurements of student learning outcomes.

At the same time, the performance data and personally identifiable student information data needs to be kept save, private, and follow federal and state standards and laws, including Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), to maintain student data security and privacy. While the data used by the USBE and Local Education Agencies (LEAs) is comprehensive, the data made available to the public is masked to avoid unintended disclosure of personally identifiable information at summary school, LEA, or state level reports.

Data Security and Privacy

In this age of data-driven decision making, data is foundational to the success of the process. Whether discussing student-achievement, program monitoring, education funding, accountability or any other education-related conversation, data is at the center of the discussion. The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) is required by state and federal law to collect and store student and educator records. The USBE takes seriously its obligation to protect the privacy of data collected, used, shared and stored. This page contains state and federal policies for data privacy and security procedures, as well as guidance and resources for various stakeholders.

If a data request is approved, it will be filled based upon a USBE priority list that may not be in accord with the requester's timeline.
