Sonoma Valley Unified School District Selects PowerSchool To Improve Student Assessment And Data Analytics Capabilities


PowerSchool (NYSE: PWSC), the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education in North America, today announced Sonoma Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) in Sonoma, California has selected PowerSchool Unified Classroom® Performance Matters and PowerSchool Unified Insights™ to improve the district’s student assessment and reporting capabilities. Along with the district’s use of PowerSchool Student Information System (SIS) and PowerSchool Enrollment solutions, Performance Matters and Unified Insights will provide SVUSD with increased visibility into the district’s student academic performance through metrics that pinpoint instructional gaps and create better learning outcomes.

“Despite Performance Matters and Unified Insights being our most recent PowerSchool implementations, the solutions have already provided strong value to the district by providing our educators increased visibility into our students’ academic performance,” said Dawn Mawhinney, Director, Educational Services, Sonoma Valley Unified School District. “Between our positive experiences using our existing PowerSchool solutions and working with the company’s helpful implementation team, we’re looking forward to fully integrating Performance Matters and Unified Insights into our district’s network.”

Since beginning the implementation of Performance Matters and Unified Insights, SVUSD said the most helpful feature has been the platform’s ability to aggregate data from multiple sources into one location. Further, SVUSD said the combination of Performance Matters and Unified Insights’ ability to aggregate data from reports and assessments into a singular location has helped increase districtwide collaboration and has made student data more accessible to users at all levels. Once Performance Matters and Unified Insights are fully integrated into the district’s network, SVUSD plans to use the solutions to improve the district’s Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) capabilities in order to better support each student’s personalized learning needs.

Along with Performance Matters and Unified Insights, SVUSD has utilized PowerSchool’s SIS and Enrollment platforms to facilitate the district's regular student data management and enrollment functions, respectively. Through the real-time data and insights aggregated by PowerSchool SIS, SVUSD has been able to efficiently manage student information on a regular basis. Similarly, PowerSchool Enrollment’s intuitive interface and ability to create customizable inquiry, application, and report forms has improved SVUSD’s enrollment processes.

“Ensuring educators have a clear, holistic view into their students’ academic performance is critical to creating better learning outcomes,” said Maulik Datanwala, Chief Operating Officer, PowerSchool. “We're proud to see the positive results Sonoma Valley Unified School District has seen since they started implementing Performance Matters and Unified Insights into its network.”

SVUSD is a public school district located in Sonoma County, California. The district serves over 3,500 students across 11 total schools, including five elementary, two middle, two high, and two K–8 charter schools.
