State Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna is now addressing JFAC about the new longitudinal data system, and his picture is very different than that offered by local school district business managers. “This is the first year ISEE has been operational,” Luna told lawmakers. “We are the last state in the nation to deploy a statewide longitudinal data system, but we have made progress quickly. This is the most accurate data we have ever had.”
He said the state and districts have made “impressive progress” in getting the system up and working right. “It's been a huge undertaking for us as we work with limited time and limited resources,” he said.
