The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District launched an online dashboard during June to better inform the community about student achievements and district statistical information.
The dashboard, which features interactive numerical displays and graphs, is available at http://dashboard.lsr7.org/.
It features six screens – student achievement, student data, human resources, finance, support services and community involvement. Examples of information are ACT college-entrance scores, graduation rates, district enrollment, cost per pupil comparisons and the number of students per computer.
The R-7 dashboard was recommended by the district’s Comprehensive School Improvement Plan Team, a broad-based group that helps develop the school district’s five-year strategic plan. School district groups involved in providing feedback for the dashboard included the Citizens’ Advisory Committee, Business Roundtable and PTA Council. District staff members from a variety of departments helped provide information for the dashboard.
