Data Warehouse & Reporting Unit
The Data Warehouse & Reporting Unit (DWR) provides support and service to the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE), other state agencies, legislators, schools, districts, federal agencies, universities, researchers and other stakeholders by fulfilling data needs. DWR performs these support services through state and federal mandated reporting requirements, ad-hoc data requests, research data requests and ADE Information Systems data needs. ADE's in-house Statewide Information System collection application serves as the main data source for reporting.
Data provided by the DWR aids in driving the use of data to inform educational policy, the development of curriculum centered on student-focused learning, and the awareness of the continual need to have useful, meaningful data to inform decision making and policy-driven processes.
The DWR continuously strives to align its goals with the mission of the department in providing leadership, support, and service to all stakeholders in a way that will ultimately impact student outcomes.
