The primary business rationale for building EDSCOMM has been the undeniable and vital need for easily-accessible, related, inter-linked educational information for the decision-making process. Whether the decision is to undertake an important policy initiative at the state or district level or for parents to decide which school to send their children to, the need for relevant data remains the same. Further, from a management perspective, experience has shown that:
Data-driven/supported decisions are most often correct. But equally as important, they are also defensible
Measured, data-driven decision-making process leads to an effective and disciplined style of management, and above all, to success and achievement of objectives.
EDSCOMM is an innovative and comprehensive browser-based solution that brings together all aspects of a typical state's educational reporting and accountability system, allowing the state to usher in a new era in the use of advanced information technology for the betterment of its K-12 education.
