What’s the difference between an advisor and account manager?

The difference between a traditional account manager and an advisor is what makes Frontline’s advisors so special. For our analytics clients, their advisor is always working to assist and provide guidance.
In some ways, the advisor functions as an account manager who goes above and beyond the traditional role of account manager. In a traditional sense, account managers are responsible for day-to-day management for client accounts. Advisors are sometimes seen as experts in a particular field who are brought in for very specific project needs. Frontline’s advisors, in contrast, have a strong grasp of the client’s product as well as industry knowledge, and they’re consistently present to proactively support the client.

The importance of data literacy in school administration today

Data literacy has become an essential skill for school administrators in today’s rapidly changing educational landscape. With the vast amount of data available, administrators can make more informed decisions.
Data literacy enables administrators to communicate effectively with stakeholders, including parents, teachers, and the community. By presenting data in a clear and understandable way, administrators can build trust and credibility with stakeholders and gain support for their decisions. For instance, if the district is considering implementing a new policy, administrators can share data on the potential impact of the policy to help stakeholders understand the rationale behind the decision.
In an ever-changing educational landscape, data literacy is crucial for administrators to adapt and make informed decisions. By staying up-to-date on the latest data trends, administrators can be proactive in addressing challenges and seizing opportunities. This ensures that school districts remain competitive and responsive to the evolving needs of students and the community.
In conclusion, data literacy is a vital skill for school administrators to make informed decisions, improve student outcomes, communicate effectively with stakeholders, and adapt to the changing educational landscape. By embracing data-informed decision-making, administrators can transform their school districts and create a more successful learning environment for all students.
