Data Manager of the Year

Congratulations to Geoff Gentry, McDougle Middle School Data Manager, for being awarded Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools 2014-15 Data Manager of the Year. This award is given annually to the data manager that has supported the district’s data managers above and beyond the job description.

Besides striving to embrace the full functionality of PowerSchool, and using PowerSchool to meet McDougle Middle School’s information needs, Geoff volunteers to work on district data teams to provide the same functionality to all Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. Often used as a resource for his peers, he is willing to assist others with their needs to access and use student and staff information in their decision-making tasks.

A CHCCS Certificate of Appreciation was also granted to Anshu Gupta, Data Manager at Seawell Elementary, for striving to enhance how information is stored, and for achieving change in the use of PowerSchool functionality during 2014-2015 school year.

As a newly hired data manager for the 2014-2015 school year, Anshu challenges traditional and school
procedures. She was successful in improving Seawell’s procedures in managing students with excessive absences, which resulted in Seawell Elementary meeting District and State requirements with great savings in time and effort.
