In an addendum to a JLARC study of school spending completed in 2005 (JLARC Report 05-19), JLARC members directed staff to identify critical school performance data that would enhance both the Legislature's and districts' ability to make informed resource commitments, and to address related changes to information systems and accounting practices. This study examines K-12 data needs and collection practices in four categories: 1) expenditures; 2) descriptive data for teachers and staff; 3) descriptive and outcome data for students; and 4) descriptive data for schools and communities. It includes recommendations for using and improving existing data, and for adding new data elements that can be used to analyze the relationship between school outcomes and expenditures.
