English Learners Online Dashboard

The purpose of the EL Data Dashboard (DART for EL) is to consolidate state data on English Learners into a single tool. Data is provided at both public and secure levels, so some data may not be available without credentials. Districts can use this tool to understand their own EL student population’s demographics, progress, and outcomes, as well as to compare with similar districts and the state.

(Please note that districts are listed alphabetically and when you click on the link it automatically shows data for Abington. To search for a district either scroll through the list or type the name of the district into the Search bar.)
