Setting Standards in Schools

SchoolNet, an ASP offering Internet solutions for performance-driven schools, districts and states, is supplying tools to meet education leaders' need to utilize their abundance of data. One of these tools is Account, a data warehouse with a powerful, easy-to-use interface that facilitates strategic analysis and effective management by key district personnel. It serves as the nerve center for a school district, bringing together disparate databases and permitting superintendents, school board members and principals easy access to up-to-date information on every critical aspect of the district. With Account, school leaders no longer must wait to see and analyze key data. For example, district personnel can quickly determine how many teachers in the district are teaching courses outside their area of certification. Likewise, they can check which math courses students have taken, and who scored above 600 on the SAT math section.

Other tools include Align, a browser-based tool that facilitates the process of setting standards, aligning curriculum to those standards, creating lesson plans, posting exemplary student work and disseminating results. Outreach, designed as an Internet portal for each school in a district, creates a virtual school community that allows educators, parents and students to share a wide range of school-related information.
