I want to meet with parents and teachers to discuss the data that must be reported for NCLB and show actual examples.

Is there an online resource that is accurate and easily accessible to teachers and parents?

Yes, there is! You want to visit the School Information Partnership. This project, funded by the Broad Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education, makes it easy for educators and parents to access the data that must be publicly reported. In addition, there is a Website Tour (in PDF format) and a suite of online tools that you and your staff can use for data analysis.
