Maximize Resource Utilization and
Improve Student Outcomes

Abl’s data analysis tools allow districts to examine the efficacy of their resource and time allocations and how resource utilization directly impacts student outcomes. 

Schools and districts examine student access to rigorous courses using Abl’s Academic Intensity framework. The Academic Intensity Measure provides critical information regarding outcome disparities between student groups and highlights high-impact areas of opportunity.

Abl’s team of veteran educators leads district and school leaders through a comprehensive data journey, leveraging School Dashboards to pinpoint clear opportunities and identify root causes of data trends. This analysis is the foundation for a collaborative action planning process that brings in complete scheduling teams to ensure insights translate into action.

Words from our clients

With the launch of our strategic plan, we were seeing gains in graduation rates and overall college readiness in our high schools. However, we knew we still had work to do to reach our goals. Abl’s analysis helped us see that many scholars were not having the rigorous, robust schedules and academic experiences they needed to open every possible door after high school. Not only that, but our scheduling practices were also resulting in a financial hit to our district.

Partnering with ABL allowed [our] administrators to do away with spreadsheets and stacks of paper — and more easily create academic pathways aligned with our core values of equity and opportunity.

Executive Director, School Innovation and Integrated Youth Services
The ABL team brought institutional knowledge of national best practices in scheduling to our strategic planning efforts, which was a serious value add. Because they know how other districts across the country are scheduling, the realm of possibilities was much broader than if we just considered what was happening in other parts of Iowa. Their expertise expanded our tool box as we considered how to provide the best, and most equitable, education for all students in our district.

We have been able to efficiently work through scheduling conflicts so students can complete their core classes while also taking advantage of other enriching, future-shaping opportunities. With a better schedule, we’ve been able to increase enrollment in important career and technical education courses by 25 percent this year.

Abl allows me to dig into the number of conflicts and who the kids are. I have more knowledge and information when I’m building the schedule rather than waiting for the end to have some conversations.

Abl knows us better than we know ourselves, but shared it in a way that was informative, enlightening and sparked critical thinking without any shame.

Director of College, Career, and Technical Education
It’s time to embrace not only the potential but the essential role of operations in furthering the pursuit of educational equity. When overlooked or underestimated, school-level processes can inhibit access to rigorous, high-quality teaching and learning. But when harnessed correctly with equity at the core, school operations have the power to improve every student’s experience—and to catalyze all other efforts to enhance pedagogy, rigor, and engagement.
