Our data team provides extensive technical assistance, coordinating and collaborating with stakeholders using established processes and tools to deliver online communities of practice, workshops, webinars, publications, and in-person meetings and conferences. To advance the state of practice, we also create unique IT tools that are modern, secure, and cloud-based.
We are proud of our successes over the last decade. We are leading experts in major education content areas, including FERPA, Common Education Data Standards (CEDS), Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS), and Generate. Through our partnership approach, we worked alongside the U.S. Department of Education to launch the Privacy Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), make CEDS a reality, develop the SLDS technical assistance effort, and implement the Generate solution. Our work has helped federal, state, and local education stakeholders realize greater integration and standardization of data; improved data systems, governance, and quality; and a more secure and privacy-protected ecosystem.
Meaningful change requires coordination, and AEM works to create breakout value by collaborating across our projects. For instance, our PTAC experts can ensure our data efforts align with privacy requirements and best practices. When education stakeholders need support, we are able to coordinate experts from multiple contracts on the same call so we can identify the appropriate follow-up steps.
