​​Leading the  ESTABLISHMENT AND ADOPTION OF TRUSTED, FREE & OPEN DATA STANDARDS ACROSS THE EDUCATION DOMAIN SINCE 1997



PESC APPROVED STANDARDS, Technology and Services are community-sourced

and driven by PESC serving as an incubator to pilot and launch data standards

using an open, transparent and collaborative process (based on a voluntary consensus model); and,

by PESC serving as an open, data standards-development and open, data standards-setting body.  

PESC governs resource mapping and maintenance of education eco-system taxonomies,

schemas and shared code sets in various technologies (e.g. EDI, XML, PDF, JSON, JSON-LD)

produced and released as PESC APPROVED STANDARDS.


FREE & OPEN STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT


PESC’s standards development model welcomes the entire community to help develop lifelong data standards!


PESC Workgroups (or Standards Development Workgroups) looking to produce

PESC APPROVED STANDARD – XML, JSON, JSON-LD, etc., are fully free and open,

meaning everyone can participate whether a PESC Member or not.

Eligibility to serve as Chair (or Co-Chair) and the right to vote on the Workgroup, however,

is only available to PESC Member organizations on the Workgroup.

As
PESC relies on Members to help fund and drive PESC, reserving leadership roles and voting rights

for PESC Members – the stakeholders most likely to adopt and implement standards – provides a fairer and more equitable voice.

PESC looks to capture the best wisdom and intelligence from the broadest group within the community

to inform its development process, and thereby produce more robust, usable, ‘lifelong learning’ data standards.

Prohibiting non-Member organizations and stakeholders from participating and contributing ideas and efforts,

when they are willing to but not yet ready to become a Member, does not serve PESC or the community.

With this
PESC Workgroup model, the entire community is now welcome and able to participate in PESC Workgroups

and the mission of data standardization can now be adopted broadly and widely. 


PESC Members continue to serve as the leaders and funders of PESC,

enabling PESC to offer all data standards free and without charge.

Located in the bustling and vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood and moments from some of DC’s most iconic monuments, The Dupont Circle Hotel is perfectly situated to enjoy the best of Washington.

Following a dramatic transformation in collaboration with world-renowned designers Martin Brudnizki and the New York-based Clodagh, The Dupont Circle brings style and sophistication to the nation’s capital.

The hotel’s new dining experience, The Pembroke, has been described by Tom Sietsema of The Washington Post as “a cut from a different cloth.” Featuring contemporary American cuisine with global influences, guests have found that the bright and airy restaurant “makes Dupont Circle a destination again.”

Across the foyer is the Doyle bar, a popular hub among the cosmopolitan set. With panoramic views of Dupont Circle, Doyle’s warm, lounge-like bar features a cocktail list inspired by the 1950s and 60s, an impressive collection of Irish whiskeys, and delicious menu of small plates.

The spacious guest rooms epitomize contemporary chic while the Penthouse Level, an exclusive floor composed of 12 terrace suites, brings luxury to a whole new level in the city with views stretching as far as The Washington Monument.

NEW  Message from PESC President & CEO Michael Sessa


​March 10, 2020


Dear PESC Members and Community, 

Please be advised that the Spring 2020 Data Summit will be replaced with a virtual experience for the same time frame.  PESC takes this action in the best interest of its Members, Attendees, and their families due to the ongoing and growing threat posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Those who registered will receive registration refund information via email from PESC, but will need to cancel their own hotel and travel reservations. We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience due to this change.

We’ll provide an update soon with full details on the replacement program along with new registration information.  We’ve also prepared some resources for you
COVID-19 Info & Resources.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me or Jennifer Kim directly.  Thank you for your continued support of PESC.

Best regards,

Michael Sessa
