With 37 schools distributed over 88 square miles outside of Houston, Klein Independent School District (ISD), faced challenges with the increasing time required to compile and report data from its many applications. Klein staff spent hours, days, or even weeks on data management tasks, noted Vicki James, Executive Director of Student Information Systems.

In August 2009, Klein selected the Mizuni District Solution to streamline data collections, improve data quality and make data readily available for their administrators, counselors and teachers. Included are the Mizuni Data Warehouse, Mizuni Dashboard Suite, Mizuni Zone Integration Server and Mizuni SIF Agents.

"We were up and running within one month, said Ms. James."In that time frame, Mizuni pulled five years of historical data from our student information system into the Mizuni Data Warehouse and loaded five years of TAKS [state] test data for all 45,000 students."

"We are helping our districts achieve more information-rich environments by providing access to data at the press of a button," said Ignacio Ybarra, President of Mizuni. "The combination of our technology solutions and district leadership will directly and positively impact student achievement."
