Analyzing all the student data from year to year can be a difficult task. Thanks to advances in technology, school districts and parents have more tools and information at their fingertips. This section will outline various tools available, some for the public and some only for school personnel. Please contact your school principal or Amy L. Repard with additional questions.
There are many Data Tools available to analyze and view student data, such as:
