Why use data in schools?
Data in any organization is a support tool allowing members to better carry out their core mission, vision, and values. The highest quality schools use data to cultivate a culture of curiosity where teachers and teams regularly discuss how they can do even better for their students.
Data provides the power to:
Make better decisions
Know the impact of our work and how it benefits children
Measure progress towards initiatives
Lead to change
