"Athletics are great. But Physical Education is for every youngster – to help them learn about their bodies, learn about ways to become physically active, but not necessarily to compete."

—George Graham (former professional soccer player and manager)

Data is becoming increasingly important in the everyday work that schools do. It is
imperative that school staff know where to find data and even more importantly know how to analyze and use it. Data driven decision making allows for several things:

  1. Data provides objective information – not opinions. It reduces misperceptions and prevents others from "hijacking" the process
  2. Data makes planning meaningful by targeting efforts directly at the most serious issues
  3. When you know more you can share more, such as when you are making progress and reach your goals/objectives
  4. Good outcomes lead to more resources.
