We provide a comprehensive list of standard "Plug-And-Play" dashboards that can be implemented quickly in your HS/EHS Program. These hosted dashboards provide critical program information at your fingertips. This service includes EVERYTHING you need to get your dashboard up and running WITHOUT having to commit your staff and time. The current portfolio of dashboards are listed below...
A comprehensive management dashboard that provides an overview of enrollment, attendance, health & disability services, meals & nutrition, family services and in-kind donations (e.g. parent volunteer).
Provides a summary of child progress for the program as well as the ability to compare the scores of the children by classroom and assessment period.
Summarizes CLASS scores by domain/dimension and provides progress detail by classroom/teacher. Other features include: teacher/classroom progression, professional development and fidelity analysis.
Provides a summary of the organization’s ERSEA processes including specific analyses on enrollment, child drops, transfers, attendance, and waitlist.
A comprehensive dashboard that aggregates data for family events and actions and provides the detailed notes as a drill-down function; filter data based on classroom, service area, event type and date.
Summarizes disability percentage, IEP/IFSP, and other critical health events and actions; aggregates data by classroom and program; including data to help to maintain 10% disability threshold.
Provides an overview of the financial performance of the organization; identifies Cost Per Child metrics in aggregate and by classroom.
Some HS/EHS grantees, the complexity of their program requires more "specialized" dashboards that help to create actionable information from their data (which may include multiple systems or data sources). For these organizations, we can coordinate with your team to brainstorm, design and implement program-specific dashboards tailored to your unique program needs.
With the proliferation of data, many HS/EHS programs are making the investment in staffing for data analytics, or reallocating current staff to take on a "data analysis" role. We can assist you in training and coaching your staff on the fundamentals of building and implementing a data analytics program. From data warehousing, to visualizing data with Power BI (or Excel), to presenting data to stakeholders, we can help you unleash your data analytics talent!

Impact Analytics has been an excellent resource for our Agency. This former CEO of a Community Action Agency with a Head Start Program knows the ins and outs of running a Head Start program, is knowledgeable about the Head Start Performance Standards, speaks the administrator’s language and can build Data Dashboards! It is rare that an excellent Tech person is also adept at listening to the non- Tech person and fully understanding the tech and non-tech implementation issues. David can plan with you and help staff get up to speed with Dashboards. Our Dashboard Project is a great success and is proving to be a springboard to deep data dives! I recommend Impact Analytics if you have data and need to learn how to make it easier to mine.

Impact Analytics assists our organization with an innovative data collection process through quality analysis of a visual dashboard with custom reports and useful data visuals. The Head Start Performance Standards require that a "program must establish procedures on data management, and through ongoing assessment, use data to effectively oversee progress toward addressing program needs, evaluate compliance, and successfully achieve program goals." Thanks to Impact Analytics, we are able to do precisely this! With this dashboard we have been able to design reports for policy council, staff, the community and planning purposes. Staff have become more engaged in the data review process resulting in better outcomes for children and families as well as staff. Dave is professional and flexible in ensuring the reports meet our program needs in order to drive program change.
