Job Description:

Data Collection Specialist
Malden, MA
6 Months
The individual will be paid for the time spent traveling to each location

Short Description:
Administrative Support coordinators will travel to school districts with a DESE staff member to conduct on-site reviews validating and documenting on family incomes related to Low Income Data Collection.

Complete Description:
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is looking for temporary staff to conduct on-site reviews in school districts and Client schools to validate documentation on family incomes that school districts and Client schools collect as part of the Supplemental Low-Income Data Collection. We anticipate that we will be conducting these on-site, in-person reviews around the state starting in late November 2022 into December 2022.


Under the Student Opportunity Act (SOA), a Massachusetts state education funding reform law passed in 2019, the Department is required to identify eligible students up to 185% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) for the purpose of determining Chapter 70 aid (state education funding) and Client school tuition payments. The Department identifies almost all low-income students through a student-level match with databases for state public assistance programs, but there is a small number of students who would otherwise qualify that are not identified through this process. In response, the Department created the Supplemental Low-Income Data Collection to give school districts and Client schools the opportunity to claim low-income students who are not being identified through the match.

School districts and Client schools that chose to participate in the Supplemental Low-Income Data Collection are required to collect Supplemental Low-Income Data Collection Forms along with supporting documentation from the families of students who may not be identified as low-income through the match with state databases. Once school districts and Client schools collect the required documentation from families, they can claim unmatched students that qualify as low income under the 185% FPL standard on their district or school s fall enrollment report to the Department. The Department will then verify the documentation for each student claimed through on-site reviews.

Job description:

Temporary staff will work in conjunction with DESE staff to conduct on-site reviews of Supplemental Low-Income Data Collection Forms and supporting documentation to determine whether the students claimed qualify to be counted as low-income for state aid or Client tuition purposes.
During each site visit, reviewers will review each Supplemental Low-Income Data Collection Form collected by the school district or Client school to determine whether each form was properly completed and verify that the income reported on the supporting documentation provided by the family falls below the qualifying threshold based on the household size.
