    Whole Child Integrated Data - General Questions

Whole Child is a data analytics tool that provides teachers and other school staff with accessible and timely information to drive student and school site decisions (e.g., instructional, student support, and administrative).  Whole Child integrates information from numerous student related and other information systems and data sources such as MiSiS, Welligent, Schoology, SAP, and State and local summative and formative assessments, yielding a powerful reporting tool that can be used individually or collaboratively by teachers, counselors, and administrators.   

Key features include: 

  • Flexibility to quickly and easily filter and analyze up to three years of critical information (both proficiency and progress) at the school, program, classroom, group, and student level. 
  • Actionable notifications to acknowledge student improvements and recognize and address student challenges. 
  • Extensive and holistic, academic achievement, social emotional and physical health information at the fingertips of the school team, including literacy assessments, Special Ed., English Learner, marks, graduation progress, college and career readiness, attendance, behavioral information, support services, online learning participation, and Schoology assignments, assessments and grades 

Whole Child was created to streamline and improve information gathering and analysis, collaboration and decision making in service of instruction and support for the well-being and achievement of students.  The purpose was and remains to support the work of those closest to students and the school community: teachers, counselors, principals, and other school-based staff.

Employees are not required to use Whole Child. It is a powerful tool provided to streamline data-gathering activities and accelerate the use of data in planning, monitoring and decision making at LA Unified schools.  

Whole Child is LAUSD’s latest and most advanced reporting tool focused on schools.  It contains up to three years of information and is being expanded to provide additional remote learning data sources.  School-based staff and the administrators who oversee schools are encouraged to start first with Whole Child to meet their information needs and then move to MyData, MyTeam, or Focus as needed.

Central office staff and Local District and Community of Schools staff that need data aggregated across schools should continue to use Focus Reporting & Dashboards for that purpose. 

 

The long-term goal is for Whole Child to be expanded beyond three years of data to encompass longitudinal data as well.  When that and any other unique functions of MyData are made available in Whole Child, MyData will be decommissioned.

 This number may be high because some users start a meeting and leave it on all day instead of having separate/distinct meetings. 

Such numbers may be high because when a user loses the connection and logs back in, it counts as two participants.
