DecisionEd announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Community Unit School District 308 (School District 308) to deliver performance management solutions. Under the agreement, DecisionEd will implement a data warehouse solution for data management, analytics and reports.
"DecisionEd is pleased to assist School District 308 in meeting its goals as it allows its administrators and faculty to understand the many variables influencing the achievement of their students, leading to improved performance for the district," said DecisionEd Chief Architect, Mark Mason.
"School District 308 is excited to partner with DecisionEd. The successful implementation of the DecisionEd data warehouse will meet a goal that was set by the district more than three years ago," said Dr. Brenda M. Dixon, director of assessment, data, and accountability. "The data warehouse tool will give the district the ability to measure the impact of our decisions and actions on the success of our students. It will also enable administrators to analyze data and recognize student needs, determine a course of action to meet those needs, implement the resulting strategies, and monitor results."
DecisionEd's solution is based on quantitative decision tools long used by business, tailored to the unique needs of education. The data warehousing solution leverages the industry-leading IBM Cognos® platform for delivery of dashboards and reports. By combining disparate databases, the solution helps K12 school districts consolidate information critical to meeting their goals. A complete, easy-to-understand accounting of critical metrics enables schools to make more informed decisions that lead to improved student success and graduation rates.
