BISMARCK, N.D. - An update in the works for North Dakota's online "school dashboard" will offer parents and taxpayers an easier way to look up information on how their area's schools and school districts are performing.

State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler said the dashboard will be accessible from the Department of Public Instruction website, and the North Dakota Insights website, which is being developed as a home for state agency and community data.

"This is part of our ongoing commitment to be more transparent and publicly accountable to North Dakota's students, parents and taxpayers," Baesler said in a news release.

The present dashboard includes information about high school graduation rates; test results and student participation for the North Dakota State Assessment for mathematics, English and science; and North Dakota results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, often called the "Nation's Report Card."

Baesler said the dashboard will be updated to include information about advanced coursework, career and technical education opportunities, school climate, school and district budgets, and tax revenues.

The project is a collaborative effort between DPI, the state Information Technology Department and the North Dakota University System.
