Panorama Education Launches First Analytics Dashboard for K-12 Principals and Superintendents

Allows Schools to Look Beyond Just Test Scores; Schools Select Which Metrics to Track, All in One View

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2015) -  Panorama Education (www.panoramaed.com), which partners with K-12 schools to collect and analyze feedback from teachers, parents and students, launched today a new Leadership Dashboard designed to provide principals and superintendents with a comprehensive view into the metrics that matter in their school or district.

This new data analytics tool is the first of its kind in the market, and is Panorama's first big move beyond surveys. The Leadership Dashboard has been beta tested in more than 300 K-12 schools, and will be rolled out to thousands more this spring, including 5 of the 50 largest school districts in the U.S.

According to Aaron Feuer, founder and CEO of Panorama Education, the company's new Leadership Dashboard helps its clients get beyond mere data collection to focus on how best to use the data to improve the learning environment. "Principals and superintendents are asking us, 'How do we measure what matters, whether it's bullying or student engagement or college readiness? And then, how do we analyze and present that data to teachers and others?' Our Leadership Dashboard helps with all of that," said Feuer.

Christopher Rau, Vice Principal at Windsor High School in Windsor, CT, is one of the school administrators using Panorama's Leadership Dashboard and school-level reports. "It lets us easily spot the trends across the board or broken down by department or category. It instantly brought my eyes to where we were exceptionally strong or areas where we need improvement," said Rau.

Panorama's new Leadership Dashboard lets principals and superintendents select the metrics they want to track from a list of approximately 50 options, including Parent Involvement, Quality of School Leadership, Student Grit and Quality of Teacher-Student Relationships. The metrics help schools answer questions such as:

  • Are we making progress on decreasing the prevalence of bullying?
  • Are we engaging our students with their classes across all grade-levels?
  • Are we improving the learning environment for minority students?

The data behind the dashboards comes from surveys the schools conduct in partnership with Panorama.

Panorama's business is growing swiftly: the company is now serving more than 6500 schools encompassing three million students, and is currently growing revenue at 50 percent per quarter. Panorama has added 50 new school districts in the past three months, including major districts with more than 50,000 students. In Q4 2014 alone, the company added two of the top 20 U.S. school districts as new customers.
