About Us

Ensuring students are on track to graduate

  • Infinite Campus, our student information system stores important student information such as course completion, attendance, and grades

  • Data and reports are prepared for teachers, site leaders, and district leaders to ensure programs are supporting student needs


Informing Teaching and Learning

  • Assessing student learning and providing reports to teachers and site leaders helps evaluate and plan what students are learning in classrooms
  • Using data helps teachers review the effectiveness of their instructional practice in their classroom


Ensuring students and their families are informed

  • The Research and Data Department manages the parent/family messaging system for schools and the district

  • Parents are able to view their children’s grades and attendance through the new Infinite Campus Parent Portal



Listening to the needs of our students, staff, and community

  • Surveys gather important information about student academic interests, perceptions of our schools, and students’ post-secondary plans

  • Community meetings and focus groups are important opportunities to gather input for district plans such as the LCAP



Improving Planning and Decision Making

  • In Natomas Unified School District we use the Cycle of Continuous Learning and Improvement to guide our progress over time.  One of the key components of the CCLI is having information to make informed decisions

  • Assessment results from tests like the, PSAT, ACT, and CAASPP help school and district leaders plan school schedules and planning for staffing needs
