We work collaboratively with districts to design and implement performance frameworks based on multiple quantitative and qualitative criteria that can be used to evaluate and improve schools.
We help districts and foundations design and implement rigorous quantitative evaluations of new policies and programs. These evaluations include both Randomized Controlled Trials, where possible, and other quasi-experimental methods.
We design and build customized dashboards that help schools and districts monitor their performance. These dashboards combine publicly available data from the federal and state education departments with up-to-date administrative data from school districts.
We support school districts in developing annual budgets, benchmarking expenses against other districts, and identifying cost-saving initiatives that can move resources to the classroom.
We help our clients develop a data strategy that works for them. This includes the collection of raw data, the storage and documentation of data, and the development of processes for maintaining and using data to support their mission.
We supplement districts’ analytical capacity for complex and/or quick turnaround projects. If it involves analyzing data and helping students, we’re interested!
