Richmond, Va. — November 15, 2017 — AIS Network, an award-winning application developer and secure managed IT services expert serving large enterprises in the government, education and health care industries, international corporations and The Commonwealth of Virginia, announces its participation in the 2017 Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) Annual Conference today and tomorrow in Williamsburg, Va.
AISN marketing communications chief Laurie Head and Bethann Canada, AISN’s K-12 education data expert, will be available to meet with VSBA attendees and demonstrate AISN’s award-winning website development work for the Virginia Department of Education and their new interactive website, which is scheduled for release next spring. Virginia’s School Quality Profiles (SQP) delivers ESSA-ready school performance profiles for districts and schools.
AISN and VDOE leveraged a full suite of current technology products to update and re-engineer a signature initiative for school transparency and accountability. Users from parents to policymakers can now easily view and compare the performance of Virginia schools via a responsive, accessible website displaying dashboards of current data. The new SQP online school report card replaces the agency’s 90’s-era School Performance Report Cards, which provided static PDFs and Excel spreadsheets.
The VSBA Annual Convention is the largest and most anticipated VSBA meeting of the year, bringing together more than 1,000 school board members, superintendents, and school division staff from across Virginia.
“We are looking forward to demonstrating VDOE’s School Quality Profiles’,” said AISN CEO Jay Atkinson. “This website sets the ‘gold standard’ for state school report cards.”
School Quality Profiles demonstrated a thoughtful marriage of data architecture and information management strategies to make public data more transparent, significant and useful. SQP recently received six achievement awards:
• Golden Achievement Award and an Award of Merit for publications and electronic media from The National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA)
• Savvy Award from the City-County Communications Marketing Association (3CMA)
• Best in Class in both the Government and Education categories from the Interactive Media Council’s (IMC) Interactive Media Awards, and
• Innovation in Utilization Award, public project category from the Richmond Technology Council.
The VSBA annual conference will be located at the Williamsburg Lodge.
