District Data Dashboards

District Data Dashboards Overview

School leaders should create and maintain measurement tools that provide credible information for all stakeholders about indicators relevant to their school district. Listed below are the seven correlates of effective schools. Each data dashboard is an example of what the district staff and school board will be monitoring and evaluating for impact on the Benton School District.
