2015 Winner Profile

Arizona Department of Education

Project Description:
The Arizona Education Learning and Accountability System (AELAS) provides all levels of the educational community with the tools and data necessary to support education transformation, academic growth and accountability. While dramatically reducing costs, the system improves data collection, quality and security. With school districts already saving more than $100 million per year by eliminating redundant technology, the school districts that adopt the state-supported software will save millions of dollars more in licensing fees and infrastructure costs. Since an entire class's performance history can be compiled in just five seconds rather than the five days it used to take, now educators can spend less time compiling data and more time acting on the data.
