CMS Unveils New Data Dashboard

Dr. Peter C. Gorman unveiled plans for a Data Dashboard for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools at the March 27 Board of Education meeting. The Dashboard, a first for the district, will allow the public to look at a number of different indicators measuring academic progress and operational efficiency.

The Data Dashboard was created at the request of the Board, which chose indicators for it in October of last year. The information that will be presented and regularly updated on the Dashboard includes End-of-Grade and End-of-Course test scores, disparities among subgroups on test scores and the district’s graduation rate.

“The Data Dashboard will make available to parents and the community a wealth of information about CMS that will show how our students are achieving,” Dr. Gorman said. “We think it’s a good way to make CMS more accessible and more transparent to the public.”

The Dashboard is being developed by the accountability group at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Jonathan Raymond, chief accountability officer, provided a slide presentation to the Board showing the proposed format for the Dashboard and how it can be used to find a variety of information.
After receiving Board feedback, Raymond said the accountability group would begin putting data into the Dashboard and continue work on it.

Other information tracked by the Dashboard at the Board’s request describes staffing levels, how many buses are running on time and public perception of the district. It also has indicators to show how many facilities have been built on time, and whether the district passed financial and school-safety audits

Yes he can take the hits but also will dish them out. The last couple of guys we had did nothing and hence the current state.

I just hope no-one comes in and offers him more money to leave.....
