Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Education at State Agency Databases Project

This week’s State Agency Databases Project subject highlight is Education, featuring 43 states that project volunteers know to have publicly searchable databases in this subject area. Three examples from this compilation are:

ALASKA

Teacher Certification Database – Searchable by teacher first or last name, this database will provide a list of that teacher’s current certifications along with expiration dates. This database does not list expired certifications or any personal data.

 

MISSOURI

Missouri School Directory – View public school information by county, district name, state house district, or state senate district. Information includes contact numbers for administrators and each school in the district, and the number of schools, certified staff, and enrolled students. Assessed valuation and tax levy amounts are also available.

 

TEXAS

Degree Program Search – From the website, “This tool allows a user to search by one field or a combination of fields to find a degree program(s) offered at one or more public community, technical, or state college, public university, health-related institution, Independent/Private(ICUT) Institution, For Profit Colleges & Universities Authorized by Certificate, or Other Institutions Authorized by Certificate. ”
