COPPELL, Texas, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DecisionEd announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Kyrene Elementary School District to implement a data warehouse solution for data management, analytics and reports, delivering performance management solutions.
"DecisionEd is pleased to assist Kyrene in integrating their data, allowing its administrators and teachers assistance in their goal of increasing student achievement, leading to improved performance for the district," said DecisionEd Chief Architect Mark Mason.
"The Kyrene Elementary School District is excited to partner with DecisionEd," said Mark Share, Director of Curriculum and Learning Services. "Our staff takes pride in putting data in the hands of teachers and administrators so that they may make informed decisions to guide instruction and learning. The DecisionEd Data Warehouse will pull together data from disparate systems, including our student information system, human resources/finance system, and student assessment system, so that staff may determine which variables most affect our overall goal of increasing student achievement. Once we isolate the variables and put programs in place to address the needs and concerns, the DecisionEd Data Warehouse will then help us to monitor the effectiveness of our actions."
