Abstract: Policy makers are under increasing pressures to continuously improve student achievement. This paper discusses the design and implementation of an electronic data-based system that supports a district wide shift to a Learner-Centered Model of instruction. Educational leaders in the district carefully planned, designed, and implemented a comprehensive data-management system that is deeply aligned with curriculum and corresponding assessments. Key decisions which have impacted student outcomes are presented and discussed. This paper focuses on key issues associated with the use of a comprehensive data-based system to implement a Learner-Centered Model. The shift to a Learner-Centered Model was supported by an extensive district investment in instructional technology and professional development. The strengths and value of a comprehensive data based system are discussed. Examples and recommendations are discussed.
