About the Collection: EEDC

The Educator Evaluation Data Collection (EEDC) collects aggregate counts of educators by their final summative rating in the following categories:

  • Teachers: Aggregate counts at the school- and district-level
  • Principals: Aggregate counts at the district-level only
  • All other administrators: Aggregate counts at the district-level only

The Connecticut State Department of Education treats the data collected through the EEDC with the utmost of data privacy. The same stringent security protocols employed by the CSDE to protect student data are also applied to protect the educator evaluation data. It is important to note that Section 13 of Public Act 13-122 protects educator evaluation data at the CSDE from being accessed through the Freedom of Information Act. Finally, when reporting these data, the CSDE implements appropriate data suppression practices and other steps to eliminate the likelihood that an individual educator’s rating can be identified. The EEDC also serves as a vehicle for districts to confirm they are in compliance with the mandated reporter training requirements
