Improving Processes, Systems and Resource Allocations
A strategic approach to increasing student achievement often includes improving the operational efficiency of districts. Having the data systems, financial systems, and business processes in place to make informed decisions can result in long-term positive impacts on the distribution of resources. Automating and streamlining processes, and collecting and linking key sets of data, can help to increase transparency and drive smart decisions about how resources are spent. Rethinking practices, processes, and systems can also help to evaluate spending decisions and ensure that priorities are aligned to improve student outcomes.
