Prepare and Get Ready for Your Next Budget Cycle

For education executives and other decision-makers, the benefits of a service like StudentTracker for High Schools may not be immediately clear. Here are some helpful tips to help you frame the discussion in your upcoming budget cycles to discuss the need to obtain data to transform secondary schools.

1. Don’t focus on the details about StudentTracker for High Schools

This may seem counterintuitive, but it’s all too easy to get lost in the details of what StudentTracker for High Schools provides. Instead, summarize the service in no more than a sentence or two. Here’s an example:

“StudentTracker helps schools accurately gauge the success of their college preparation efforts by tracking college enrollment, persistence, and completion rates nationwide. It helps schools answer key questions and provide helpful reports – using verified data that no one else has.”

2. Emphasize Return on Investment

Education executives are under pressure to demonstrate their programs’ effectiveness i.e. return on investment. Connecting high school-level programs to college graduation rates is a powerful way to do this. StudentTracker for High Schools’ data allows decision makers to ask and answer virtually any question about their graduates’ postsecondary outcomes.

Moreover, StudentTracker for High Schools gives schools and districts data that is not available anywhere else – verified enrollment, persistence, and completion information on high school graduates reported by the nation’s colleges and universities. No other service pulls this data together and matches it with your students the way the National Student Clearinghouse does.

3. Focus on the outcomes

Connect the dots between StudentTracker for High Schools’ data and your district’s most important initiatives. The Clearinghouse’s data can help schools collaborate and correct course to respond to changing realities and improve student success.

“StudentTracker helps schools accurately gauge the success of their college preparation efforts by tracking college enrollment, persistence, and completion rates nationwide. It helps schools answer key questions and provide helpful reports – using verified data that no one else has.”
