(Dover, DE.) Delaware’s Department of Education (DOE) has a new look on their website for school profiles. Unveiled last week, the completely redesigned, easier to use school profiles are a plethora of information for school, district and state education data and statistics.
First developed in 1997, Delaware was one of the first states in the nation to publish school profile information both on the Internet and in hard copy form. In the eleven years since, constantly changing state and federal requirements have caused the school profiles to be modified but never completely redesigned.
Last year, DOE decided to redesign the school profiles in order to meet state and federal requirements while incorporating suggestions from Vision 2015. “The goal was to make it more understandable, easier to read, and reduce the number of printed copies of school profiles,” said Robert Czeizinger, Director of Technology Management for DOE. “While meeting these requirements, we decided to take a look at other states’ profiles and try to exceed what was being published elsewhere.”
The new school profiles contain easy to read graphs and data, term definitions as well as access to more detailed educational data. Data is categorized through the use of tabs and drop down fields into school, staff and student graphs, tables and charts, making it easier to access information users are seeking.
“School profiles are a ‘snapshot’ of information within our school system,” said Cziezinger. “As more information becomes available, additional links will be added to the school profile pages making it easier for one to find information on the DOE website. The profiles will continue to become more dynamic and will allow DOE to provide quality information to all of our citizens.”
“The new school profiles system is a stepping stone to other reports and information
about education in Delaware,” said Secretary of Education Valerie A. Woodruff. These reports and related information will become even more robust as the system matures. This is a valuable tool for those seeking to learn more about our education system.”
