Bernice Butler
Senior Associate
Data Quality Campaign
DC EPFP 2015-16 
When students, parents, educators, and partners have the right information to make decisions, students excel. What can policymakers do to ensure that data is used in service of student learning? In April 2016, the Data Quality Campaign released Time to Act: Making Data Work for Students outlining Four Priorities to Make Data Work for Students, or a set of state policy recommendations for ensuring those closest to students have the information they need to make decisions. Since then, DQC has also published a set of recommendations for federal and district policymakers. During this conversation participants will:
  • Learn about DQC’s recommendations for the federal, state and district role in making data work for students
  • Discuss opportunities in the federal Every Student Succeeds Act for states to deliver on these recommendations, and
  • Understand the policy context for this work through a summary of state student data privacy legislation this year

Taryn Hochleitner is a senior associate for policy and advocacy at the Data Quality Campaign where she helps identify, advocate for, and support changes to policy and practice that improve the ability of everyone with a stake in education to use data to make decisions. Before joining DQC in 2014, Taryn was a research associate for Education Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. Taryn earned a bachelor’s degree in Sociology at American University and is an alumna of the Institute for Educational Leadership’s 2014-2015 DC Education Policy Fellowship Program.

As a senior associate at DQC, Bernice Butler aids in the alignment of DQC’s local, state, and federal recommendations, which provide education leaders with the information they need to support students and families in every community. She analyzes emerging policies and practices, convenes national thought leaders, and works with partner organizations to aid local and district leaders in using evidence to improve student outcomes. Prior to joining DQC, Bernice was the director of the Memphis Talent Dividend and Graduate Memphis. She earned her BA from Georgia State University and a MPA from the University of Georgia. Bernice is also 2016 graduate of the Institute for Educational Leadership’s DC Education Policy Fellowship Program.
