Data has the power to solve a school’s toughest challenges – but first, it has to be usable. Adopting a data standard like Ed-Fi helps you organize, secure, and connect student data across your district.
When a school district’s software and systems work together and speak the same language, their value skyrockets. Educators can better serve their students and districts save time and money. Ed-Fi enables data systems from education agencies and technology providers to seamlessly connect in a single, secure place. This gives district leaders access to a complete and real-time view of their students and schools, so they can use data to make faster, more informed decisions.
By uniting all of the information about a student from across apps, tools, and systems, you can equip your district with actionable, student-level insights that disconnected data sources can’t provide.
Removing the walls between your technology systems allows you to connect the dots and spot trends across the district, among schools, and within student populations.
When you make decisions based on live, real-time data – instead of reviewing historical reports days, weeks, or months later – you can flag issues faster and take action earlier.
No third party should hold a school district’s data captive. When your data sources are connected, you’re not tied to separate portals, canned reports, or spreadsheets.
"When your district is smoothly rolling, looking at data, your teachers have access to everything immediately at their fingertips… it’s invaluable."
"Ed-Fi helps us solve the challenges we’re facing with data by being a data standard—both as a data transfer tool, as well as a data persistence tool. In other words, a way in which we can store and hang onto data and come back to it.”"
"There’s a lot of good work happening, but it’s in pockets and silos and not being shared enough … We want all our tools talking to each other, so there’s this collective intelligence."
It may not seem like connecting data sources could yield immediate results for some of the biggest challenges districts face – but it can. It’s our mission is to show you how and help you get there. First, narrow in on one of your top pain points. Focusing your effort on getting a quick win is the key to long-term success.
