Illinois Data Access and Use Policy and Procedures

Organization: Illinois State Board of Education

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) collects a large amount of valuable data, including personally identifiable data, and takes seriously the responsibility of maintaining this data in a way that is secure and respects the privacy of parents, students, and teachers. When used correctly, analysis of this data serves to inform program evaluation and innovation and, ultimately, to push the learning of students in Illinois forward. This Data Access and Use Policy is intended to serve as a reference tool for those seeking information about the types of data that ISBE maintains, the ways in which ISBE protects that data, and the methods by which it is distributed for public knowledge and research purposes.
