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.
"Above all, we needed an interoperable solution that would upgrade SASI/MMS and enable us to move from 11 servers to one server, PowerSchool has made that possible. Because of PowerSchool, teachers and parents are now a part of a collaborative infrastructure that continues to impact student performance across our district."
