I've worked on the marketing team at SchoolDude since 2013. I currently am the Public K-12 Marketing Manager and serve the Public K-12 market with helpful resources and trends that can help them in their day-to-day work. I work closely with the sales organization and several other departments to ensure clients and the public have a clear understanding of what SchoolDude does and the benefits our solutions provide to educational institutions. It’s exciting to work in marketing everyday and see clients succeed and schools benefit from using SchoolDude. I grew up in Virginia and graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Business- Wahoowa!
On our recent webinar, over 75% of attendees indicated they think a business intelligence tool would be useful or very useful to their institution and could help with maintenance and operations. On our recent webinar, Numbers that Matter: The Power of Business Intelligence in Education, Jack Bay, Chief Operations Officer of District 49, a decentralized district in Peyton, CO serving 19,000 students, shared how he is using SchoolDude's business intelligence, including his Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), dashboards, and metrics to improve his department and provided a 3-step guide for other institutions to follow suit.
According to Jack, “KPIs have become the fabric of our work. Nearly daily, we meet with team members to review our KPIs and determine our focus.” For example, Jack’s operations team has a goal to get all work orders complete within 1 week to make sure instruction continues seamlessly. “KPIs help us track progress toward that goal,” said Jack.
Jack’s ultimate goal is to be the best in all areas, including operations. They are already a campus champion, or in the top 20% of institutions nationwide in facilities and operations. “We continually want to improve and become a peak performer –in the top 10% of all institutions. We grade ourselves like students - above a 90% is an A,” said Jack.
They measure themselves against districts nationally, regionally and, most importantly, locally. KPIs create transparency in performance and enables District 49 to stack themselves up against nearby districts.
Here are 3 tips from Jack to bring KPIs into your daily work:
SchoolDude allows schools to see their KPIs, comparing to schools of similar size and type; see dashboards and drill-down views of their data; use trend data, heat maps and more.
