DATA MANAGEMENT GROUP
The Data Management Group (DMG) is the official data management oversight body of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI). The DMG is charged with the responsibility and authority to set policy and resolve issues concerning agency data collection, management and use. The purpose of the DMG is to enable the NCDPI to meet the responsibility of providing accurate and timely data to key stakeholders.
Comprised of representation from each business unit, the DMG supports the agency's efforts to achieve the State Board of Education's (SBE's) mission, by ensuring data quality, accountability and timeliness, all of which are essential to enabling data-driven decision-making.
Although The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) provided student directory data to the IsPOD initiative through NCAAHPERD, it did not require the collection of this data or provide any guidance or monitoring of the FitnessGram data collection. As a result NCDPI will not endorse or release the FitnessGram data.
