The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation will provide a $1.5 million grant to Delaware's K-12 Insight Dashboard, which provides teachers and administrators access to timely information on how students are performing in the classroom. The grant will allow for an expansion of the dashboard into early childhood education from birth through pre-K. The dashboard system will use the funding to improve data collection from a wider variety of state agencies, and eventually, child care providers and other service agencies will be allowed to access the dashboard to improve student outcomes. State Education Secretary Mark Murphy says, "This generous grant will be critical in helping us to further our work. [It will allow the state] to provide more valuable tools to our educators who are working hard to support our students' learning from birth through graduation."
