The purpose of the data dashboard is to establish the strategic indicators that the Superintendent will regularly communicate to the Governing Board and public.
These indicators will provide a comprehensive snapshot of the operational health of the District and progress towards the Boards strategic goals. By enabling our various stakeholders to more easily monitor District performance, our objective is to create a focus among staff and the community to propel our students to high achievement.
The purpose of the data dashboard policy is to improve the oversight and communication of District performance. This is supported by the Board adopted policies on Core Beliefs and Commitments, Theory of Action and Management Oversight.
The data dashboard consists of a limited number of carefully selected indicators that communicate the status and progress of the District toward its goals.
Reporting and Oversight
The Superintendent will prepare a data dashboard for the Board on an annual basis. The data dashboard shall communicate a full years performance of the District. The Board charges the Superintendent with disseminating the data annually to the Districts constituents, including but not limited to parents, staff, business leaders and government officials.
Data Dashboard Indicators
The Board directs the Superintendent to develop, recommend and report on data dashboard indicators which will include student achievement, operational excellence and other key focus areas. The identified data dashboard indicators shall be presented to the Board for approval annually.
The data dashboard will be developed and implemented in the summer of 2008 with the first full year of implementation beginning the 2008-2009 school years.
The Board will review this policy annually.
