HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glimpse K12, the only education technology company that analyzes school spending in the context of student outcomes, announced today that DeSoto County Schools - Mississippi’s largest school district - has implemented the Glimpse K12 platform to measure ROI on academic investments. DeSoto has more than 34,500 students across 42 schools.

Already in use in hundreds of schools, Glimpse K12’s Education Return on Investment (eROI) platform provides school districts with insight into how well they are aligning resources with students’ needs and how investments made in the classroom are yielding actual student results. For instance, Glimpse K12's platform can measure the impact that a certain curriculum package made on standardized testing grades.

“At our size, efficiency is a priority,” said Cory Uselton, Superintendent at DeSoto County Schools. “We actively address efficiency across the district in many ways, including consolidating district-level positions where possible to free up more resources for the classroom. Glimpse K12 will help us see at a macro level which academic investments are having the biggest impact on learning, so we can do more of what works and less of what doesn’t.”
