The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) strives to provide actionable, timely data to interested stakeholders. While external data requests are accepted, not all data requests are granted. Responses vary based on alignment with DDOE priorities. Additionally, consideration is given to statute and federal law, privacy concerns, security procedures, the availability of staff to monitor the data release and the perceived benefits of the research.
District, charter school requests
Delaware districts and charter schools should request data through the DDOE HelpDesk > Helpful Links > Data Request. Log in using an Identify Management System (IMS) username and password.
Public data requests
Those who do not work for a Delaware district or charter school must complete an external data request form to request DDOE education data. Please sign and email the form (in PDF format) to email@example.com with "External Data Request" in the subject line. Incomplete or unsigned forms will not be processed.
All external data requests are reviewed and approved by DDOE’s External Data Request Committee (EDRC). EDRC meets monthly and will respond within 3-5 business days of their decision. Approved requests may require up to 45 business days from the date of EDRC approval to fulfill.
