Data, Accountability, Reporting and Evaluation (DARE)

The Data, Accountability, Reporting and Evaluation (DARE) team under the Office of ESEA Programs within the Federal Programs Unit is responsible for evaluating the effectiveness of ESEA programs, as reauthorized under ESSA, and fulfilling federal accountability and data reporting requirements. Our team collects, manages, and analyzes data to inform the development of applications for funding and standards for program quality, by going beyond accountability measures and evaluating the impact of programs and identifying best practices in program implementation.
