Okay. If you’ve made it here, you’re ready to start the data cycle. Great! So what does “get your baseline” mean?

Simple. Baseline just means “things as they are right now.” Enrollment data is baseline data – who are our students ? Last year’s test scores are examples of performance  baseline data.

Find out how things stand — get your baseline — and you’ll be ready to make things even better.
