Simplify Data Review and Reporting Processes…
Problem: A large school district collects an extensive amount of data on student performance. The data is analyzed and results are reported to the Board, Superintendent and other district executives on a regular basis. The staff does a thorough job at analyzing the data, however it is a time consuming process, involving extensive re-formatting of spreadsheets, manual data manipulation and clean up of extraneous information.
Solution: Create and implement a strategic plan for comprehensive data management. The plan would focus on significantly reducing (or eliminating) the need for manual intervention, while providing the same quality analysis and timely management reporting.
