b"Measuring our Journey through Data In line with goal 3.2 of our Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP),the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) has been on an intentional path toward data literacy since 2019. An important step on that path is using data to understand needs, make decisions relative to those needs, and monitor our progress. That focus continued throughout the 2021-2022 school year with a collaborative effort between divisional and school leadership. Making data accessibleThe Louis Riel School Division's (LRSD) Data Discovery Dashboards allow students, staff and families to interact with various datasets through Power BI. The web-based tool attempts to make data accessible and understandable to everyone in the LRSD community.Near the end of the 2020-2021 school year, LRSD launched the Student Achievement Data Discovery Dashboard, which illuminates the division's Greatest Areas of Need (GANs) and the correction of socio-economic status (SES) with achievement. By clicking through the various pages of the Student Achievement Data Discovery Dashboard, individuals can isolate data based on skill, gender, grade level and more. Building on the Student Achievement Discovery Dashboard, the division expanded access to data in the 2021-2022 school year through two additional public dashboards:Enrolment and Diversity Student and StaffData Discovery Dashboard Reported Absence DashboardsThis dashboard keeps our community informed about currentIn January 2022, LRSD launched the Student and Staffenrolment, the demographic and diverse make-up of theReported Absence Dashboards to allow the public to view self-student population, and enrolment and demographic trends. reported student and staff absences.
