Overview Of School Data And Compliance Project of Bully Prevention Alliance - Prepared By.Tammy D. Moon

  1. 1. Indiana School Data<br />&<br />Compliance Project<br />
  2. 2. Purpose<br /> <br />The purpose of the Indiana School Data found within the website of Bully Prevention Alliance is multi-tiered. When complete anyone will be able to go to any one of the pages within the tier and find informational data that shows how the schools are doing on a state level, unified school district level, county level, and school district level.<br />
  3. 3. Goal<br />The goal of this project is so that one will have the ability to have not just a glance at how our schools are doing, but also to be able to have valuable information that will give an outlook on future need on multiple levels.<br />
  4. 4. Impact<br />This information can help not just parents, but also :<br /><ul><li> educators,
  5. 5. researchers,
  6. 6. government,
  7. 7. our judicial systems, and
  8. 8. any other category of person(s) or institutions.</li></li></ul><li>Impact<br /> <br />It will serve as a resource for those within our higher educational institutions to project their own future need and our judicial system on future trend giving the ability to project what they will need to plan for in multiple areas.<br />
  9. 9. Impact<br /> <br />In addition to those areas are the valuable resource it will be able to supply to those within the fields of medicine, psychology, sociology and economics.<br />
  10. 10. Need<br />There are 250 school districts within the state of Indiana. In order to complete this project volunteers, and interns, can be used to help in the collection and posting of the data within the unified pages for each school district, county and unified school district. <br />
  11. 11. Need<br />This also will include a single page under each county with data from private schools and charter schools that are willing to provide information about their own schools.<br />
  12. 12. Need<br />Professional volunteers at several levels will be able to provide a summary of how such data can help in future trend outlook within multiple areas and what we as a state should project in those areas.<br />
  13. 13. Need<br />The time that it can take to collect the data itself, for each school district, and to post can take upwards to two business days. The time frame in which it could take for the policies for each school district to be evaluated for compliance with the states laws, statutes and regulations could take an additional 2 - 3 days to be completed and posted.<br />
  14. 14. Need<br />The total estimated manpower needed in order to finish this project within a six month time frame can range between 25-50 people depending upon their level of experience and ability to work efficiently. If done with volunteers and interns this project could be cost efficient with a low budget.<br />
  15. 15. Need<br />The ability to maintain the project within providing updated data. While it would be great to provide updated data every year it may not be possible to do so if such data is not made available in all areas every year from the supplied sources. Therefore it is projected that the information within this area will be updated every two years or when the supplied sources update their information.<br />
  16. 16. Design<br />There are four tiers to this area. Instead of looking at these tiers from the top down it is better to look at them from the bottom up. These four tiers are:<br /><ul><li>Individual School Districts,
  17. 17. County,
  18. 18. Unified School District, and
  19. 19. State.</li></li></ul><li>Design<br />Individual School Districts<br />One of the purposes of the data is so that people can go to any one of the pages for the school districts in the state of Indiana, find updated information on the progress of our schools in certain areas, and see whether their educational policies are in compliance with the laws, statutes and regulations of the state of Indiana. Each school in that district will be listed with their reported data made available.<br />
  20. 20. Design<br />County<br />One tier up from the individual school districts is the county information. The data from each school district within each county in the state of Indiana will then be shown in summary form on the county level. Additional information will be researched and included within this data from other sources besides just education.<br />
  21. 21. Design<br />Unified School Districts<br />One tier up from the county level is the Unified School Districts. Taking the summarized educational data from counties one will be able to get a quick glance at how each of the six unified school districts are doing in the state of Indiana as whole.<br />
  22. 22. Design<br />State<br />On the main tier level, or the main page, one will be able to observe a complete overview of how the state is doing as a whole from the calculated data made available from the supported sources used in the collection of the data. As well, information will be noted as to the number of school districts in the state that are in compliance and the number of school districts that are not in compliance. Additional research information will also be made available upon this page.<br />
  23. 23. Conclusion<br />This data can help in making significant improvements within our educational system on not just the issue of bullying and cyber-bullying, but can also help in preparation of designing and implementing further education in many various areas.<br />
  24. 24. Conclusion<br />It can serve as a valuable resource to those in the:<br /><ul><li> educational institutions,
  25. 25. judicial system,
  26. 26. medical community,
  27. 27. governmental organizations,
  28. 28. military,
  29. 29. certain nonprofit organizations, and
  30. 30. Businesses</li></ul>in projecting areas of future need.<br />
  31. 31. Conclusion<br />When updated the information from the prior data will be maintained thus giving individuals the ability to see prior trends, whether there were improvements, as well as what areas need to be targeted as critical, amongst other things.<br />
