P-20 Data System
LB 1071 (2010) required the Department of Education, University system, State Colleges, and Community Colleges to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to share data and establishes the NE P-20 Data Governance Council. The overall governance structure consists of the Data Governance Council, Management Team, Technical Group, and the Research Review Board. The primary purpose of the Technical Group is to ensure the infrastructure is operating to collect and store data and maintain the warehouse. The P-20 Technical Group consists of a Program Data Owner and a Data Technical person from each agency contributing data to the NE P-20 system. This website is a collection of resources and communication regarding postsecondary data collection.
