MCG’s AI-Powered Data Solution Supports Partnership That Empowers Student Success Journey
The Central Florida school districts of Osceola County and Orange County Public Schools have teamed with Valencia College and the University of Central Florida (UCF) to improve higher education access and graduation rates by enhancing the use of data and artificial intelligence (AI).
The partnership aims to support student success along the pre-kindergarten through postsecondary journey to help students gain the education they need to meet community needs and economic demands.
The ecosystem also aims to meet the Florida legislative attainment metric, Sail to 60, where 60% of High School graduates will attain a post-secondary credential. This attainment metric is significantly higher than the current rates.
To meet these goals, the Central Florida Educational Ecosystem Database (CFEED) is developing actionable findings across the entire student journey that can be used to facilitate the operational shifts and student interventions to achieve the Sail to 60 attainment metrics.
Midtown Consulting Group (MCG) has developed an AI-powered data solution on the Microsoft Azure platform, based on MCG’s reference architecture model. This advanced, cloud-based system combines and analyzes data sourced from each of the partner organizations to deliver valuable predictive insights and recommended actions from across the student journey. The solution reveals new ways to measure student readiness and student needs.
MCG’s efforts led to the development and operational use of the Central Florida Educational Ecosystem Database (CFEED) platform, which boasts a cloud-based data warehouse, a top-tier analyst team, an extensive portfolio of research, as well as the creation of many student interventions. This partnership, and its technical capabilities, has not only improved specific success measures, but it has also bolstered Institutional collaboration and established programs to implement complex interventions.
