Accurate State Reporting
With educators, legislators, and parents pressing for educational excellence through No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and other initiatives, the growing "accountability" movement seeks to improve learning through the effective use of school data.
Pearson is a strategic partner for states that are seeking to improve achievement through insight and analysis around school data. Our SIS products accurately generate reports and extract necessary data for compliance with state and federal data collection requirements. At Pearson, we support districts by:
- Employing a large team of state reporting analysts and dedicating millions of dollars each year in state reporting development efforts.
- Working with state officials and districts in nearly 40 states to monitor requirement changes and keep current with each state's unique set of calculation rules, submission intervals, and data transport methods.
- Supporting efforts to accomplish state reporting aims within the Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) "vertical reporting" initiatives.
In addition, our enhanced state reporting module provides faster report response times, an improved user interface and greater overall performance capabilities.
"PowerSchool is our first experience with a student information system and it has enabled us to build a truly collaborative network between schools, teachers, parents, and students. From administrative staff to parents, the entire diocese has been impacted by the benefits of PowerSchool."
