Solving the Problem of Disjointed Administrative and Instructional Data
Our education system is undergoing sweeping changes. To thrive during this time, district administrators need access to accurate, real-time data in order to make timely, informed decisions and better adapt to changes in the education landscape.
For instance, the recently passed Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) has shifted control to states and districts and is in many ways a U-turn from its predecessor – bringing with it new challenges as well as opportunities. ESSA requires each state to create a “report card” detailing student and student subgroup performance in a number of fields. It also demands a close monitoring of English language learners, graduation rates, school improvement, and per-pupil expenditures. These new demands create changes in accountability and interventions and provide new opportunities for prepared districts.
