The Data Administrator Institute is a program for those acting as the data administrator (district data coordinator) in their school district. The Data Administrator Institute curriculum will cover areas such as establishing data teams, defining and implementing data standards, identifying data sources and gaps, state reporting requirements, understanding the tools and resources available and presenting meaningful data to promote and enhance data driven decision-making.
The Data Administrator Institute provides training and support well beyond the basic tools such as Level 0 and available reporting tools. This is a comprehensive program that focuses on data accuracy, timeliness and use with various audiences. As the central point of contact for data collection activities in a school district, the district data coordinator is key to initiating cross-departmental discussions and data management strategies that not only facilitate the data verification and certification processes, but, more importantly, create a culture of data understanding and use.
Participants in the Data Administrator Institute will have access to specific data presentation models and other support materials and resources designed to complement the curriculum and promote district, building and classroom level discussions around data.
