NRMPS Unveils Data Centers
Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools recently approved a cutting edge means of registering students to the school district, while centralizing student data management processes. There are two models, one beginning July 9 and concluding July 26, involving elementary schools.
This summer parents will register their children at one of five data centers located at NRMPS middle schools. The five centers were selected based on proximity to elementary schools and current feeder patterns.
There is no need for parents to wait until the beginning of the school year to register their children. Students may be enrolled July 9-26 at the following schools:
If your child will attend:
Benvenue, Englewood, Williford or Winstead
Register at EDWARDS MIDDLESCHOOL
Baskerville, Johnson or Pope
Register at PARKER MIDDLE SCHOOL
Cedar Grove, Hubbard, Red Oak or Swift Creek
Register at RED OAK MIDDLE SCHOOL
Bailey, Middlesex or Spring Hope
Register at SOUTHERN NASH MIDDLE SCHOOL
Coopers, Nashville or any elementary school
Register at NASH CENTRAL MIDDLE SCHOOL
*Registrations will not be accepted at elementary schools
The second model will be in effect for the 2012/13 school year, and begins on Wednesday, August 1. It will involve three regional data center locations, based at DS Johnson Elementary (Annex Building), WL Greene, and Spaulding schools. The model links elementary and middle schools with Regional Centers based on proximity and current feeder patterns. High schools are not included at this time.
The decision to move to Regional Data Centers was based on research. Regional Centers have shown improved quality of data as well as increased standardization of processes, roles and tasks. Data can be accurately and efficiently handled with approximately 18 NCWISE Data Managers versus the 27 currently employed District-Wide. This reduction of staff results in significant salary savings at a time when the district is attempting to reduce costs due to budget shortfalls.
Beginning August 1, 2012, parents should register their students based on the school data center assignments below. This includes students new to the district, and those transferring to another school within the school district.
Region 1: DS Johnson Elementary School (Annex Building) - 9 schools
Baskerville, Benvenue, Englewood, Johnson, Pope, Williford, Winstead, Edwards Middle, Parker Middle (approximately 4,638 students)
Region 2: Spaulding School (NRMPS Migrant Center)- 4 schools
Bailey, Middlesex, Spring Hope, Southern Nash Middle (approximately 3,024
Region 3: W.L. Greene School - 9 schools
Cedar Grove, Coopers, Hubbard, Nashville, Red Oak Elementary, Swift Creek, Nash Central Middle, Red Oak Middle, Tar River Academy (WL Greene) (approximately 4,058 students)
School system staff is working through the specifics of the actual enrollment process for centers, and are asked to stay tuned to local media outlets for details.
