Data Governance Services
The Chester County Intermediate Unit formed a Data Governance Team in May 2021. Our Data Governance team has 4 members, who have over 35 years of combined experience in PIMS, Child Accounting and State/Federal Compliance reporting. Our team has experience with several student information systems and is fully devoted to working in PIMS. We have the experience and insight to assist your school and/or district in optimizing efficiencies and useable output. From initial system orientation to customized consulting, CCIU works to help you achieve your data governance goals.
PIMS (Pennsylvania Information Management System) was developed to improve data capabilities and enhance school districts' capacities to meet student-level data reporting requirements and provide robust decision support tools. PIMS is an ever-evolving system, but remains of utmost importance for school districts as the data collected and reported is utilized by PDE (PA Dept of Education) for statewide decision making, published on the Future Ready PA Index, and directed over $13 Billion in subsidies. How can our Data Governance Team help you? For more information on Data Governance Services, contact us: Stacey McCreary, Manager of Data Governance 484-237-5002
