Money matters – maybe as much as teacher quality, student effort, and parent support – in determining education quality. A major public school district in the Pacific Northwest is working with BlueGranite to maximize every one of those resources. We’re harnessing data to make the most of every dollar, retain and recruit quality staff, raise grade point averages, increase graduations rates, and boost the number of graduates heading to college.
A top-ranked East Coast tech university prides itself on not just keeping up with change, but leading it. Driven to innovate, this university is working to engage incoming students on their own terms. With the tech-savvy Generation Z (born after the mid-1990s) entering college, the university is incorporating ways to further engage this digitally innate group. By automating and personalizing its online communication capabilities, the university can more deeply engage with this student demographic, from application to graduation, and beyond.
Maintaining consistent academic growth and accurate records aren’t just priorities for the educational powerhouse – they’re necessities. Much like public schools, charter schools are accountable to and funded by the government. In order to retain funding, such operations need to prove they are earning it. With such a massive student population, this could easily become a Herculean task. For this conglomerate, the support of an ever-evolving streamlined data and analytics system, that we at BlueGranite helped execute, has simplified reporting and record keeping.
