facilitate easy, safe and appropriate access to data campus and district staff need to accomplish essential job functions, and
eliminate time staff currently wasted in data hunting-n-gathering, sifting and organizing that consumes more time than the data analysis component requires.
Enable staff to have tiered levels of access to generate reports derived from data critical to their job functions via a web-based interface to a data warehouse of content. (refer to diagrams at end of document)
The end result is a more informed leadership and decision-making in service of students and staff.

A web dataportal – This component provides as a browser-based, easy to use interface to the data warehouse that enables campus and district staff to have point-n-click query-creation abilities to generate a variety of reports that juxtapose data from a variety of internal and external data sources.
