The Education Organization domain defines the organizational structure and hierarchy of education organizations. The EducationOrganization entity serves as an abstraction for common attributes and associations. Throughout the model, if there is an association to or from an EducationOrganization the meaning is that the association may be with two or more types of organizations. The model supports the following structure:
StateEducationAgency is an optional entity for the state department of education or equivalent.
EducationServiceCenter is an optional entity for a regional organization between the district and state level.
LocalEducationAgency represents a school district or charter management organization.
School represents the point of education instruction.
EducationOrganizationNetwork represents a self-organized membership network of peer-level schools or LEAs intended to provide shared services or collective purchasing.
AccountabilityRating holds education organization ratings assigned by an accountability system.
