To improve our infrastructure and resource allocation abilities, we have developed an information visualization tool that helps you helps users compare LAUSD schools and see which ones are performing well, which ones are struggling, which would make strong long-term partners and which ones need extra resources.
We currently have data only for LA, but plan to include data for all large metros wherever Iridescent plans to expand to.
You can access a video and some slides showcasing how to use the interactive tool to identify high and low performing schools from our website (www.IridescentLearning.org), under "Impact" and "USN Map Project".
The slides have screenshots of different combinations of variables and I have marked a bunch of high and low performing schools (including charter schools).
