With the myriad of digital systems that school districts are using today, student performance information and usage data exists in silos. What processes, strategies and technologies will help aggregate data across the digital ecosystem? IMS Global’s K-12 Summit brings together thought leaders to explore these issues, learn from each other and determine how to ensure student success using data and analytics.
