Feb. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) in Arizona, a nearly 10,000 student district, is focused on providing an integrated system to manage student assessment and reporting, and leverage that data as part of their teacher and administrator evaluations to address the mandate of Arizona Senate Bill 1040.  In order to make these goals a reality, FUSD partnered with K-12 educator effectiveness industry leaders, Truenorthlogic and Public Consulting Group (PCG), to support their vision of providing a single system to assist in the assessment of their students and professional growth and development of their educators, while increasing their ability to make an impact on student learning.

The FUSD system will provide one repository for assessment data with upgraded reporting, and more efficient online evaluation processes aligned to curriculum, resources and data.  Educators will have increased ownership of their own professional development, and at the same time, decrease costs for managing all aspects of professional development.

“Flagstaff Unified School District is committed to the success of all students by matching great learning opportunities with excellent instruction.  The partnership between Truenorthlogic, PCG, and FUSD will allow us an effective method of ensuring high quality instruction for our students as well as optimal professional development experiences for our teachers,” remarked Dr. Robert Hagstrom, Director of Research and Assessment for FUSD.

“We look forward to supporting FUSD with the foundation and tools needed to ensure educator professional growth,” said Jeanette Haren, CEO and Co-founder of Truenorthlogic.

“PCG has a long history of designing and implementing instructional management solutions that are tailored for educational agencies and their specific needs.  FUSD has made a solid partnership within PCG and Truenorthlogic to deliver a comprehensive system to manage district initiatives related to educator effectiveness and student achievement including the creation of a more efficient district assessment process as well as improving employee evaluation, professional growth and development management capabilities,” said Katie Melfy, Sr. Consultant at PCG Education.
