Wow, 2020 may very well go down as the year that school districts implemented the largest number of initiatives in history. The pandemic exposed technology shortcomings from start to finish. Now that those shortcomings are exposed they are being addressed. Unfortunately never fast enough it seems. The 2021/2022 school year will also usher in an additional tsunami of initiatives to address learning gaps, social emotional learning, and to create more equitable education systems in general. It truly is an exciting time in the history of education.
The first step to supporting new and existing initiatives (SEL, MTSS, RTI, PBIS and more) is a solid data analytics foundation for progress monitoring. All initiatives will fail without this foundation. Yet most schools try to implement initiatives by skipping this vital step. To make matters worse, schools will waste money and years trying to turn every teacher into a data analyst. This is not necessary and no other industry in the world approaches new initiatives in this manner.
This is where Intervention Compass enters. We have a team of data scientists that in just a few days will integrate and normalize all your data sets (SIS, i-Ready, Accelerated Reader, AimsWeb, Acadience, Aeries, assessments, surveys, to name a few). Yes, this difficult, laborious task is done in days, not months or years. This is what our specialized team does. This is the first step to building the data analytics foundation that will support all of your initiatives. But we don’t just build it once.
