Using Data Analytics in K-12 to Drive Effective Decision Making

While administrators have access to more data than ever before, too often they are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information and unable to use it strategically. But the right tools can transform this challenge into an opportunity. Creating dashboards can give district leadership the ability to analyze enormous amounts of disparate data in a simple, visual way, resulting in more effective and informed decision making throughout the school system.

Watch this web seminar to learn from an administrator at Katy Independent School District in Texas about the fundamentals of data analytics in K12, unifying district information systems into a centralized dashboard, and using data more strategically to inform your district leadership.

Topics will include how to:

  • Bring together demographic, discipline, assessment, mark reporting and attendance information
  • Unify finance, asset, and purchasing data
  • Create effective centralized data dashboards
  • Use visual dashboards to drive effective district decision making
