Data analytics is The power of data analytics is rapidly moving moving districts towards into ththe e analytical orientation necessary to meet today’s challenges, and away from a traditional transactional orientation. In this presentation, Eidex team members reviewed pProduct enhancements that supporting this analytical orientation. were reviewed by Eidex team members.
Eidex understands that standing on past success is the surest path to falling behind, and ultimately becoming irrelevant. Eidex understands We have this and has numerous projects in the planning and early development stage, including. A Fiscal Stress Model is in the planning stages . The intent is that o provides a district self- analysis based on Early Warning analysis metrics. Special education is a significant factor in most districts, so we a’re looking at various ways to collect data that can better measure the impact of special education in a district when while looking at comparisons compared with peer districts. Similar to the ROI feature you’ll You can expect to see more “cross functional” analysis as we correlate various financial, academic, and demographic data in order to provide useful tools for your day- to- day operating decisions.
Finally, a recent national statistic caught our eye. It compared K-12 student enrollment trends with college enrollment in teacher preparation programs. Eidex collected the data and charted it for Michigan (Exhibit A). The result is cause for future concern: as the supply of qualified teachers will be less than the probable demand. What will be the ultimate impact in negotiations, staffing, and ultimately the day-to-day delivery of service to students? We will keep looking forward and providing districts with relevant data analysis for their consideration, decision- making, and any other purpose they find helpful. We take pride in being a client driven organization. Let us know how we can help, and let us know subjects you woul’d like us to explore further.
