AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- nFocus Solutions®, the leading provider of performance management and outcome measurement solutions, has been selected by Communities in Schools, National Office to help redesign its existing performance management and shared measurement system. The nFocus platform will be leveraged across its national network of nearly 200 affiliates located in 27 states and the District of Columbia.


Established in the 1970s to bring community resources inside public schools, Communities in Schools is one of the nation's leading dropout prevention organizations. Its unique model positions site coordinators inside schools to assess student needs and give them access to resources that will help them succeed.

Communities in Schools selected nFocus over competitor offerings for its proven, powerful software. As a long-time user of technology to document results and use data to drive decisions, the nFocus deployment marks the organization's fourth-generation performance management system.

"We sought a way to take our evidence-based services that address school and individual student needs to the next level. nFocus is the right technology provider to help us accomplish that," said Dr. Heather Clawson, Vice President of Research, Evaluation and Innovation at Community in Schools. "As a result, all of our local affiliates and the schools they serve will gain a much deeper understanding of the individual progress being made by students and the overall benefits to each school. We will utilize the nFocus' Case Management and Outcome Measurement Toolkit to assist us with this goal.  Additionally, nFocus' Community Server and Community Compass applications will allow us to aggregate data, identify needs, map community resources and examine trends on local, state and national levels."

"Community in Schools' selection of nFocus further positions us as the technology partner of choice for today's nonprofits and communities," said Ananda Roberts, President of nFocus Solutions. "We look forward to supporting Communities in Schools in its efforts to grow and provide students with the resources they require to stay in school and achieve in life."
