PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Department of Education (RIDE) and the R.I. Board of Governors for Higher Education (RIBGHE) on June 8 unveiled Rhode Island DataHub, a new central resource for student data on educational achievement, demographics, health and student-risk factors, from prekindergarten through college.

The DataHub allows researchers, educators, and the general public to view and to analyze data about student achievement in school, about retention and graduation rates and about success upon graduation.

“The DataHub provides us with a complete, in-depth view of how well we are serving our students in school and what steps we need to take to prepare all students for success,” said Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee.

“We will use the resources in the DataHub to guide decisions about education policies and practices as we work to transform education in our state,” said George D. Caruolo, chairman of the Board of Regents for Elementary and Secondary Education.

The $620,000 project was paid for mostly by federal money. It was designed and developed by The Providence Plan and can be accessed at www.ridatahub.org/. •
