ADE researchers study the costs of SAIS to districts and charters
- SAIS has approximately 2,000,00 identifiable errors every year
- Districts and charters spend $40 million dollars every year fixing ADE data errors
- Nearly 500 full-time employees statewide dedicated to making SAIS work in their district/charter
Vail School District tells Superintendent Huppenthal the real cost of SAIS
“The real tragedy [of SAIS] is that we have four highly-capable, technically-proficient individuals on the payroll just to make SAIS work…. I have to wonder what wonderful, amazing, creative things these four individuals could do to forward the mission of educating children if they didn’t have to spend all their time fixing SAIS.”
