What did Imago Dei Middle School need?

Matt helped Imago Dei Middle School identify their program’s success metrics and teach them how to collect and analyze data to regularly measure the effectiveness and impact of their programs.

Why is this project important?

As a community-funded free private school for low-income children in our 14th year, we have a unique depth of knowledge about our families, and now that we are doing fancy achievement testing we have the opportunity to understand how various adverse circumstances affect our students' ability to learn - and what we can do to help them. A tool for collecting and analyzing this data can help us do better, and also better show our donors, who love metrics, the value of our programs.

This project will save us $6,868, allowing us to spend nearly $7,000 on direct programming instead of administration. That's two months' worth of hot lunch for the whole school, or nearly half of the cost of sleep-away summer camp.
