COPPELL, Texas, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DecisionEd announced it has been chosen by Metropolitan School District of Lawrence Township (MSDLT) to provide data management, analytics and reports; delivering performance management solutions.
"The alignment between DecisionEd and MSDLT of the vision for data usage was key in our two organizations partnering together. The district's vision for a central repository of data and how they plan to leverage the power of data driven decisions is exciting," said DecisionEd Chief Architect, Mark Mason. "We are delighted about the opportunity to impact education in MSDLT."
"MSDLT has been researching data warehousing systems for the past fourteen years. After several unsuccessful pilots with other systems, we think we have found the one in DecisonEd Performance Management Software!" said Patrick Horan, Assistant Director of Data Integrity. "What we desired in a data management system is:
- One repository to hold all types of data (achievement, attendance, discipline, human resources, financial, etc.) and the ability to input new data into the system within a reasonable time frame;
- Easy access to timely snapshots of performance in a data dashboard that is tailor made for each user type – Superintendent, School Board, District and Building level administrators, teachers, students;
- The ability and flexibility to quickly and easily pull multiple data points for comparative analysis; and
- The ability for district and building level administrators to drill down into the data from district to school to grade level to teacher to student.
"DecisionEd checked all the boxes for us," Patrick continued," Not only will it be the one go to place for data, we plan to use the predictive analytics feature to assess our current programs and help us anticipate future needs. As a vested company with a great reputation, DecisonEd has already established positive relationships with our SIS provider and most of our assessment vendors. We are looking forward to partnering with DecisionEd as we move to the next level of data analysis and data driven decision making."
