Norwalk ACTS believes that Behind Every Data Point is a Child. We owe it to our children to know their larger story by collecting, connecting, and analyzing multiple data points, over time, across the cradle-to-career continuum.
Our Data Services provide useful and equitable data access and engagement with insightful information about child and student outcomes—within and across schools, service providers, and Norwalk as a whole. This helps parents, community organizations, teachers and school leaders, employers, and investors collaborate using a consistent evidence base to understand and improve community-level outcomes.
Our goal is to build a secure and reliable cradle-to-career data infrastructure that provides a trusted system for collecting, storing, and accessing data for measurement, analysis and visualization. This will enable access to information that empowers the community to better support all of our children. Norwalk ACTS takes data privacy seriously. We have data-sharing and confidentiality agreements in place with Norwalk Public Schools (NPS), which define safe and responsible use of student data, adhering to all privacy requirements. We also obtain parental consent whenever appropriate before our members share data with Norwalk ACTS.
