The Knox Community School Board approved the addition of a new Data Systems Coordinator position Monday night.

There are so many tests that need to be dissected every year from the ISTEP, End of Course Assessment Tests and to the NWEA testing at the lower grade levels, one person needs to be in charge of assessing the data being brought into the corporation.

Superintendent A.J. Gappa says that data is helpful to figure out lesson plans and unit plans and much more.

“The Administrators need to use some of that data in the evaluation system for the teaching staff,” explained Superintendent A.J. Gappa. “With the PowerSchool system that the parents have, which has access to the data that includes attendance, grades in the classroom and so forth, one person will be able to work solely with the data to better teach the students in the Knox schools.”

Mrs. Kukula was selected for that position.
