• District Dashboard Frequently Asked Questions

    Ankeny Community Schools works to provide accurate and timely information to the public for the purposes of increasing understanding about you school district. This dashboard is intended to provide students, staff, parents, and community members an at-a-glance compilation of important District goals and results related to the Strategic Plan, including comparative and historical trends when possible.

    What is a "dashboard?"

    The Dashboard is a high level overview of the status and trends in the areas measured by our strategic plan such as student achievement, resources, finance and operations, and community involvement. In addition, information is included that goes beyond the strategic plan to other specific areas of results.  It is intended to be a quick user-friendly tool that provides comparative and historical trends data when possible.

    Why did we create this dashboard?

    The dashboard is intended to offer an at-a-glance assessment on how schools are performing, as well as a status assessment of key operations in the district.

    Will the Dashboard be updated and changed?

    Yes! The contents of the Dashboard will be updated as new data becomes available. In general, updates will occur as follows:

    • Achievement data will be updated in the fall.
    • Strategic plan areas of measurement will be updated annually as each point of data becomes available.

    Over time, we expect the dashboard to evolve as we include more detailed information and provide data from other measures and assessments the district uses to determine the progress of its students.
