Project Overview

At Capital Village Schools, our commitment to educational excellence is deeply rooted in data-informed strategies. We seek a volunteer with expertise in Salesforce to engineer a sophisticated data dashboard. This project is pivotal for our operational and strategic decision-making and includes:

•Comprehensive Data Integration: Importing and synchronizing data from various sources including enrollment records, attendance logs, standardized test scores (including PARCC data), academic grades, and disciplinary reports.

•Interactive Dashboard Development: Designing an intuitive and interactive Salesforce dashboard that provides educators and administrators with real-time, actionable insights.

•Custom Reporting Capabilities: Implementing customizable reporting tools within the dashboard to track key performance indicators and student progress.

•Training and Documentation: Providing essential training and documentation for our staff to effectively utilize the dashboard.

•Ongoing Analysis and Improvement: Establishing processes for regular data analysis, ensuring our educational strategies are continually refined and optimized for student success.

Your contribution as a Salesforce expert will empower us with the tools to make data-driven decisions, enhancing our educational programs and directly impacting the lives of our students. Your work will be instrumental in fostering a culture of excellence and innovation at Capital Village Schools.

To ensure the success of our project, we have taken several preparatory steps. We have appointed a dedicated Community Engagement Associate who is currently doing some basic training courses and she will work with the volunteer so that she can continue the work moving forward. This training aims to equip her with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively manage and coordinate community involvement.

Our strategy involves a collaborative approach, where the Community Engagement Associate will work closely with volunteers. This collaborative effort ensures a smooth transition of responsibilities and knowledge transfer, enabling the sustained progress of the project even after its completion. The ongoing collaboration between the associate and volunteers will not only facilitate the successful implementation of the project but also foster a sense of community ownership and continuity. We believe that this approach will contribute to the long-term success and impact of our initiative.


Nonprofit Overview

Capital Village PCS is a small learning community where learners take the lead, grow together and change the world. We are an intentionally small middle school with no more than 45 students per grade level and two teachers in every classroom. Our community is a village focused on the interests, needs and ambitions of each individual learner, so that all learners can grow. We teach rigorous, high-school preparatory content through student-led projects that blend Common Core standards with local social justice problems that students are empowered to design solutions for. We teach life skills, like conflict resolution and goal-setting, alongside powerful cognitive skills, like evaluating an author’s argument. We provide plenty of time during the school day for students to develop their talents, interests, and passions through student-led “passion projects” in courses like Music Production, Entrepreneurship and Art. Our after-school clubs partner with the community with offerings like dance, swimming, chess, debate and intramural sports. Capital Village PCS is a small school with big ideas.
