Atlanta Public Schools has created a new website to provide parents with detailed data about their kids’ schools.
“The website, APSInsights.org, includes color-coded school profiles, an enrollment and performance map, data explorer tools, and a blog with information about how to best utilize the tool,” a press release from APS says. “Parents can learn how their school compares to the district and state on multiple student achievement indicators and find information about school climate and demographics. Potential APS parents can also learn about their zoned school and APS school options such as administrative transfer and charter schools.”
The site was funded as part of a turnaround strategy for the school system, financed with a $2.1 million investment by the Walton Family Foundation.
“Foundation resources are also supporting the ongoing creation of data dashboards for teachers, and a parent dashboard portal that will be released in the summer of 2018,” the press release from APS says.
