SchoolJoy Performance: End-to-End Edu Program Analytics

The CARES Act, which was passed in March 2020, allocated $30.75 billion in emergency education funding for K-12 schools in the United States, including $13.5 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. Tracking program spending, student participation, and promoting equity in funding are essential to ensuring that every student receives the support they need and ensure ESSA-compliant programming.

We are excited to announce the launch of SchoolJoy Performance, the end-to-end solution for streamlining ROI analysis on educational programs for schools and districts, enabling schools to make more informed decisions about program spending and support for students.

With SchoolJoy Performance, schools can track program spending on a per-student basis, identifying which programs are the most cost-effective and efficient. Schools can also monitor student participation over time, identifying students who may need additional support or evaluating the effectiveness of a particular program. Most importantly, SchoolJoy Performance streamlines reporting of program spending by ethnicity, grade level, and other subgroups. This information helps promote equity in funding by identifying any groups that may be under or overfunded.

A recent report by EdWeek Research Center revealed that 80% of school administrators say they need more help with data analysis to track spending and student participation (EdWeek Research Center, 2021). SchoolJoy Performance’s ability to provide powerful analytics tools streamlines the process of tracking and evaluating program spending, making it easier for administrators to identify areas for improvement and allocate resources effectively.
