LAUSD Announces Environmental Steps, New Platform for Student Data

Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Austin Beutner Tuesday announced a new system intended to consolidate information about the district’s 600,000 students.

“Teachers, principals, and counselors currently spend too much time searching for information about each student, taking away valuable time that can be better spent addressing the needs of students,” Beutner said. “Student data is kept on over 80 different databases and this new platform will provide all of the information in one place.

“In order to better serve the individual needs of students, Los Angeles Unified is launching the Whole Child Integrated Data Platform. The new platform integrates all relevant student information from over 80 data platforms into one system. The new platform will make it easier for educators to access the information they need in a timely fashion.”Click here to read more:
