ESP Solutions Group

ESP has provided expert services for two decades to state and local education and other government agencies to design, build, and improve decision support systems.  We understand how to translate national data standards into practical, working systems.  Essentially, ESP moves quality data from one agency to another and presents reports to decision makers in timely and usable format.  In the process, we ensure that the principles of data governance protect personally identifiable information while allowing maximum use of data with minimum burden imposed on the data providers.

Data governance begins with a metadata dictionary tool to reduce your data reporting burden, designate official statistics, and create a calendar of all data activities by standardizing and documenting data element definitions across all collections, repositories, and reports/outputs.  DataSpecs does all this and much more.

State Report Manager (SRM)

Automating reporting from local systems to the state education agency has been State Report Manager’s (SRM’s) success story for over a decade.  Districts have complete control over their data as SRM manages the entire process of consolidating, cleaning, formatting, certifying, and exchanging data between agencies to ensure the state receives perfect data every time.
