Vision
1

The TEA data management environment is currently
focused on meeting state and federal compliance
reporting requirements.

An LEA facing data warehouse will make near real time,
actionable data available to educators and relevant
stakeholders.

State and federal reporting needs can be met more
transparently, using data that LEAs will provide for the
Education Data Warehouse (EDW).
