(SANFORD, FL) – Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) will release Snapshot Reports for all Elementary, Middle, and High Schools. The Snapshot Report reflects the Seminole County School Board and Superintendent Dr. Walt Griffin’s desire to provide the community with a transparent report that highlights SCPS as a Premier National School District. The Snapshot Report allows each school to customize information on special program offerings, the arts, career tech education and clubs, activities and athletics. Data analytics firm, Datanautix, has partnered with SCPS on this project and utilizes its artificial intelligence technology to analyze the data from each school.
The Snapshot Report includes School Performance Data that includes:
· High School - nationally recognized assessments like Advanced Placement, PSAT and SAT
· Middle School – nationally recognized assessments like PSAT 8/9; the percent of students participating in high school credited math courses
· Elementary School – iReady and Star Early Literacy results
Also included are Acceleration and Exploration Information such as:
· High School - College Acceleration data and Workforce Readiness information such as available industry certifications; graduation rate, number of Bright Futures recipients and scholarship dollars earned by the last graduation class.
· Middle School – courses offered for high school credit and digital tool and industry certification opportunities.
· Elementary School – advanced mathematics and world language opportunities.
One of the unique features of the Snapshot Report is the inclusion of Student and Parent Perception Data. Students in grades 4-12, as well as parents, can participate in the Snapshot Survey in mid-January through mid-February. The survey includes questions on how likely they are to recommend their school to other students or to other parents and then they provide comments about the school. Datanautix uses its artificial intelligence technology to analyze the comments and determine through the eyes of students and parents what makes each school unique.
The principals have completed a final review of the Snapshots Reports and the reports are ready for publication. In the future, all reports will be published in August just prior to the start of the school year and will include all data available at that time.
