While administrators have more student information available to them than ever before, the challenge is to use this data effectively and strategically to ensure that students are learning and achieving at high levels, and that district resources are allocated efficiently. In this web seminar, two administrators discussed how they transformed their districts by using data from their student information systems more effectively to improve instruction and to create measurable gains, while also improving efficiency and communication between staff, students and parents.

For a number of years, an aging student information system (SIS) plagued Bethlehem Central Schools, located near Albany, New York. By spring 2013, it was apparent new software was needed to maintain the data about the district’s 4,900 students.

“We correctly predicted our SIS would soon be considered end-of-life and would no longer be supported,” says Dr. Sal DeAngelo, chief technology officer for the district. “We wanted to stay ahead of the curve and find a new solution before that happened.”
