Goochland County Public Schools Increases Graduation Rate to 96.7% Using PowerSchool Analytics

Goochland County Public Schools serve 2600 students outside of Richmond, VA. The district implemented PowerSchool Analytics in 2012 to more easily monitor student subgroups, meet federal objectives by tracking school and district performance data, and better meet the needs of all students by identifying exactly when they started struggling. They had an assessment tool, but what they didn’t have was insight into how subgroup students were performing on all of their assessments, like MAP, PALS, WIDA, and CogAT. Without visibility, it was nearly impossible to catch and correct learning gaps immediately.


The Roadmap to Successful Formative Assessment Implementation

The teacher’s understanding of exactly what their students know before and during instruction is significantly more powerful than finding out what they know after a lesson or unit is complete. State standards are becoming more rigorous each year.


Navigate the New Learning Landscape

The most effective way to help students learn has always been to teach them the way they learn best. That includes not only the choice of material and how it’s presented, but also the manner and setting of that presentation. In a recent THE Journal webcast, Sam Morris, Global Education Solution Architect at Lenovo and educator Kelli Etheredge, Director of Teaching and Learning Resources at St. Paul's Episcopal School provided their unique insight on the new learning landscape.


Dublin Unified School District Case Study: Moving to the Head of the Class

Future Ready Networks for Education Technology

As the bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon continues to grow, and classrooms move to a digital first learning model, more devices will demand network connectivity at faster and more reliable speeds. Read this white paper to understand where IT needs to invest to elevate the classroom experience.


The Digital Revolution in Higher Education

As its title implies, this book provides an optimistic vision through a series of thoughtful, if not a provocative collection of writings from those closest to the system. No discussion regarding the digital revolution in higher education is complete without taking into account the viewpoints of the innovators, the faculty, the students, the chief information officer, and the administration. The Digital Revolution in Higher Education is all about the changes regarding the advances in technology and how institutions of higher learning along with nontraditional organizations are utilizing these powerful new tools. Learn how this revolution will help reshape higher education.


Enabling Bring Your Own Device

The idea of bring your own device (BYOD) for connectivity has been well recognized in most networking environments. This trend has only increased in recent years as more students have turned to personal computing devices as study aides as connectivity has become easier and costs have fallen. This white paper explores the impact of BYOD on modern education network environments through education-specific cases and a deeper look at the evolving needs of wired and wireless network access on campus.
