What is Data Governance?
Data governance is
a set of processes that ensures
that important data assets are
formally managed throughout
an organization.
Why have a Data Governance Plan?
 Ownership of key data elements is often unclear.
 The responsibilities of data owners are not well understood.
 Data is often stored in multiple locations with no identified single
source for the “correct data”.
 Data quality is questionable.
 Data availability to the right people is sometimes difficult.
 Data is released to the public that is in error.

Decision
Phased Approach
This year as the School District of Clay County converted to
the Focus Student Information System, the School District
of Clay County had an excellent opportunity to implement
a data governance plan.
Other systems such as HR/Finance may be going through
upgrades or new implementations in the future.
