    Action Steps to Ensure Strategic Planning and Implementation of all ARRA Grants
               Governor’s Office & SEA Engage LEAs in Development of Overall State Education Reform Plan
            Governor’s Office & SEA gather input from LEAs on their strengths and weakness in terms of the four reform priorities. Then together
             with LEAs, business leaders, parents, teachers, and community partners, SEA maps out overall plans that incorporate these reform
                             priorities into a state-level framework for its ARRA applications and implementation of ARRA funds.

           National Education Data Model (NEDM)

A comprehensive, local education, conceptual data
model that provides a common structure with
which schools can:
      •    Evaluate and improve software tools
      •    Enhance the movement of student information from
           one Local Educational Agency (LEA) to another and to
           the State Education Agency (SEA)
      •    Inform instruction and enhance data quality
