Abstract: EDFacts is in the implementation phase of a multiple year effort to consolidate the collection of education information about States, Districts, and Schools in a way that improves data quality and reduces paperwork burden for all of the national education partners. In order to minimize the burden on the data providers, EDFacts seeks the transfer of the proposed data as soon as it has been processed each year for State, District, and School use. These data will then be stored in EDFacts and accessed by federal education program managers and analysts as needed to make program management decisions. This process will eliminate redundant data collections while providing for the timeliness of data submission and use.
