North Dakota rolls out new 'school dashboard' with data
Dec. 22, 2017
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says a new "school dashboard" offers parents and taxpayers an easier way to look up information about how schools are performing.
People can use the dashboard to view information about individual schools and districts. It can be accessed from the Department of Public Instruction's website and a separate website, North Dakota Insights , which is being developed as a home for state agency and community data.
The dashboard currently includes information about graduation rates and test results. For example, North Dakotans can find how many students in a specific school scored as "proficient" or "advanced" in state tests.
Baesler says it will be updated later with a wealth of additional data, including information about advanced coursework, career and technical education opportunities, budgets and tax revenues.
