Data & Technology Tools

Technology plays a key role in helping to identify chronically absent students and provide them with the targeted support they need to come to school and stay in school.  The Student Success Data Dashboard offers a real-time look at performance in the three critical ABCs: Attendance, Behavior, and Coursework.  The Data Dashboard is reviewed by the principal, Success Mentor, and community partners of each of the 25 schools at weekly Student Success Summits led by the principal.  Using the Data Dashboard, they can identify students who are falling behind in attendance and create directed interventions—including after-school programming, case conferences, community supports, tutoring, special recognitions, and more—and evaluate outcomes to help get them on track.
