Success Story

Austin Independent School District

Austin Independent School District
Brenda Richmond
Executive Director of Information Systems

Austin ISD in Texas has an enrollment of nearly 80,000 students. Staff and administrators needed to have easy access to student-related data in order to support them. To address this need, the data and technology departments at Austin ISD took on the challenge of implementing a comprehensive student information system that could be accessed district-wide.

Austin ISD chose 5Lab for this endeavor. The technology team at Austin and the Forecast5 team worked together to create dashboards that clearly, visually display valuable student information, as well as provide dashboard access to more than 300 principals and assistant principals who rely upon the system to support their students on a daily basis. The district has also established Professional Learning Communities through which additional system training has been made available to those in need of it.
