We are here to support your program.

The Big 10

Why Data? 

Based on the size and scale of our program, we want to make sure we use data to:

  1. Create actionable priorities. 
  2. Streamline communication between PMs, school-based staff, and mentors to ensure that all students are tracked and up-to-date on the college process. 
  3. Capture information to better assess our impact. 

Use Advising Scripts and Checklists for information on how to use post-secondary data to support pairs. 

Check out this document, Data for High Quality Advising, to become more familiar with everything we are tracking in Enroll for high school.
