West Valley School District in Washington State was looking for a way to create a dashboard to measure their "5 Steps to Student Success," a program which aligned with their Redefining Ready work. Unfortunately, the data needed to support this initiative was not stored within their Student Information System, and required gathering data from disparate datasets.
Using 5Lab, Chris Nesmith, Director of Innovation and Futures, and Angela Von Essen, Assistant Superintendent for Business and Operations, were able to gather and link the necessary datasets to measure these five indicators of student success. The completion of this project enabled the district to analyze these five indicators across both grades and buildings. Additionally, the project positioned the district to be considered for accreditation through the National Redefining Ready program.
