Facilitating SES from an administrative perspective: Using data management systems

From enrollment forms to student progress reports to provider invoices for services, implementing SES presents many new administrative responsibilities and record keeping and data needs for districts. To ease some of this administrative burden, districts have employed data management systems to serve as processing agents and repositories for information related to SES. Data management systems can assist a district in any number of its administrative responsibilities. For instance, data management systems can assist in receiving and processing SES application forms from parents. To providers, data management systems could provide student-level data and lists of students. From providers, data management systems could allow for submission of assessment data, student learning plans, progress reports, attendance sheets, invoices, etc. Additionally, data management systems could be configured to allow for access by parents, SES coordinators, principals, and teachers, thereby assuming an important communication role. Data management systems can also help track student attendance and attrition, as well as perform other important functions related to monitoring and accountability.
