Data Privacy, Analysis, & Reporting Branch
- We are pleased to inform you that the Research & Reporting Branch has changed its name to the Data Privacy, Analysis, and Reporting Branch (DPAR) to reflect recent changes in the Office of Data & Accountability (ODA), which has added a new branch called the Strategic Data and Evaluation Branch (SDEB). The SDEB Branch will now oversee all of the District’s research-related and program evaluation-related tasks as well as the review and approval of all research proposals and projects. If you have research or evaluation questions, please contact SDEB Director, Dr. Kathy Hayes by calling (213) 241-4100.
- Please know that, with the exception of research-related tasks, DPAR’s primary responsibilities remain the same, including: managing and administering District surveys such as the School Experience Survey and the College & Career Readiness Survey; responding to internal and external data requests; providing data analysis and reporting support to the District and our schools; and ensuring the District’s data privacy policies and protocols are followed and enforced. We want to make a this a smooth transition for everyone. Therefore, we request that you please make a note of the change in our Branch’s name as well as the addition of the new SDEB Branch and its research-related responsibilities.
- The Fall 2022 School Experience Survey will be administered Monday, October 24th through Friday, December 9th, 2002. Students and staff will, as always, take their survey online and all parents are strongly encouraged to take the online survey as well to protect the health and safety of everyone (parents who are unable to take the online survey should contact their child's school to get a paper copy of the survey).
