Bridges4Kids LogoWebsite Promises Easy Access to School Data

Federal, state and private education leaders launched a Web site Thursday that promises unprecedented access to information about public school performance.

The site, www.SchoolResults.org, will serve as a clearinghouse for new state report cards on education, including data broken down to the school district and school building.

Under No Child Left Behind, the new federal law, states must report data on a range of fronts, including teacher qualifications and achievement among all major groups of students.

The Web site is designed to present that information in a convenient and uniform way, so parents and policy-makers can make comparisons across districts and track student progress.

The Education Department and The Broad Foundation are sharing the $9 million cost of the project's first phase. Six states -- Delaware, Florida, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington -- are the first to take part. Organizers hope to post data from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico by summer.
