ADVISER Pilot Districts
The first stage of the implementation in the 2014-2015 school years involved the limited production releases (LPRs) also known as the Pilot of dashboard prototypes to 9 districts that elected to participate in pilot releases of the data dashboard and these were namely:
• Bancroft Rosalie Public Schools
• Boone Central Public Schools
• Fairbury Public Schools
• McCook Public Schools
• Neligh-Oakdale Public Schools
• Omaha Public Schools
• Ponca Public Schools
• South Sioux City Public Schools
• Valentine Public Schools
The Pilot districts were a group of dedicated volunteers who gave their valuable time and effort to ensure that the reports being made available through the dashboards are relevant to real-world education scenarios. The Pilot Districts’ feedback has played a foundational role in the organization and functioning of the dashboards.
The Pilot districts represented a range of enrollment sizes, geographic locations, and student information system (SIS). This range was intended to help NDE troubleshoot potential issues that might arise for a broad spectrum of future Early Adopter Program (EAP) districts.
