Learn from SunGard K-12 and East Penn School District about an insightful, new subject and formula that redefines ROI for school districts everywhere.
It’s time for schools to look beyond the financials when it comes to investing in data management systems. Measuring non-fiscal returns can reveal a clearer value of the investment.
Return on value is the new benchmark in:
- Student achievement
- District-wide knowledge
- Community engagement
This benchmark can turn any district into a K-12 Success Ecosystem where everyone is engaged, all stakeholders are at the table, goals are aligned.
This subject shows the value of enhancing information and communication for students, parents, teachers, administrators, school board members, policymakers, and community members by revealing a new formula for ROI.
This has been successful in various school districts PA where key stakeholders have been able to think big about educational programs and increase their focus on data-driven decision making to support student achievement. For example, East Penn School District’s Comprehensive Plan focuses on providing a learning environment in which students will become effective problem solvers, critical thinkers, collaborators and communicators. Some of the goals of that plan focus on the need to data to inform decision-making. Data transparency is evident to EPSD community members and others by accessing historical and trend data found on the district’s Dashboard and E-FOLIO. Due to the laser-like focus on the Mission Statement, it is easier to determine what initiatives, programs…fit academically, fiscally, behaviorally and which ones do not.
