What challenges do you face?
Pekin Public School District 108:
“Not enough time. Having to manipulate some of the data manually.”
South Sector—United Independent School District:
“Staff has continued to work on active files instead of creating drafts; it is imperative to have the ability to lock active files once (student information) is archived to help maintain active and historic student records.”
Pine Tree Independent School District:
“Finding the time can be challenging. The accountability piece has been somewhat challenging. Keeping track of what student information has and hasn’t been archived—in the past, this has been difficult to determine.”
Katy Independent School District:
“Not enough time. We want to make sure we benchmark and archive all of our data each month so we don’t lose any of it, and keep a running record of historical data. Losing live data is a major concern. Lack of interconnectedness in some of the data systems our district uses can be a challenge.”
