Recognizing the efficacy and potential cost-savings of contracting for independent educational performance assessment services. Recognizes the efficacy and potential cost savings that contracting for independent educational performance assessment services can provide decision makers. Such services can provide decision makers comparable and contextual academic, financial, and demographic data to make consistent and clear information available for instructional and resource decisions and for ensuring accountability. This resolution notes the new data requirements of No Child Left Behind and that the development and implementation of new software to collect and analyze this new data could be costly and require months of work. Thus, the use of an existing, effective, and quality educational data system may save, in the long run, money and time.
