DataDirector resources  

Many Michigan schools use DataDirector to help them narrow learning targets and support teaching and learning. Schools in St. Clair County have adopted the data warehousing tool DataDirector from Riverside Publishing. 

DataDirector is an innovative online data management and assessment solution — a powerful decision-support system that lets educators access data, view reports, and better understand students. Unlike simple assessment systems, DataDirector allows users to combine multiple data types over time to maximize reporting, and answer complex questions. (source: DataDirector Solutions). 


Implementation efforts in St. Clair County are led by a group of leaders representing local districts. Local contacts:

  • Algonac: Jamie Smith
  • Capac: Dave Phillips
  • East China: Catherine Woolman
  • Marysville: Jennifer Johnson
  • Memphis: Kelly Sampier

  • Port Huron: Cindy Compton
  • Yale: Joe Haynes
