Publish date:

Mizuni, Inc. announces Mizuni Aspire, a platform that delivers secure, cloud-based data management solutions for its K-12 District Partners. Mizuni Aspire provides data visualization, proactive notifications and predictive analysis in a user interface developed specifically for touchscreen tablets and smartphones. It consists of modules that solve specific problems common to K-12 school districts. .

Mizuni Aspire Perform allows school districts to establish and monitor goals across student performance indicators shown by research to predict student achievement. These key performance indicators include attendance, college entrance assessments, course credits, discipline, formative and state assessments, grades, mobility and suspension information. The web user interface enables educators to monitor performance trends for each student while also providing analysis at the classroom, small learning community, grade and school building levels.

Mizuni Aspire Integrate automates data transfer between school district applications eliminating redundant data entry, and improving data quality and timeliness. Mizuni Aspire Integrate consists of application-specific data adapters and cloud-based messaging services that securely connect data adapters and achieve the desired near real-time data flows. Mizuni Data Adapters are available for most student information systems and K-12 applications. In addition to reducing technology costs, Mizuni Aspire Integrate can provide data to other Mizuni Aspire modules, reducing implementation time and costs.

Mizuni Aspire was developed to accomplish three primary goals:

1. Support school districts' fundamental shift from using data merely for compliance reporting to using data for improving student, classroom, and school building performance.

2. Rapidly deliver cloud-based solutions addressing K-12 school districts' common needs in a stable environment that allows users to access information anytime, anywhere.

3. Lower the total cost of ownership for District Partners to implement enterprise-grade data management solutions that address various school district needs.
