About this paper
Today's educational leaders face an environment that requires real-time decisions and accurate, reliable and timely data in their oversight of schools. Rather than guessing or hoping for the best, leaders can use data effectively to develop and foster a culture in which all members of the district understand, apply and manage data as a dynamic entity to support the district's focus and improve outcomes for students, staffs and schools. This paper describes eight essential steps for this important transformation of a school district's culture.
