DO YOU WANT FIELDWIDE DATA ABOUT JEWISH DAY SCHOOL FINANCIAL METRICS TO HELP YOU MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS ABOUT
When you know how your school compares with others, you can make informed, data-driven decisions that can strengthen your school.
Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL) is a data collection and reporting tool used by thousands of independent schools to access meaningful comparative school data.
Through our partnership with the National Association for Independent Schools (NAIS), Prizmah is making the Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL) tool available to you to explore your school’s strengths and opportunities, set goals, and understand how you fit into
The DASL database is only as rich as the data Prizmah schools provide. We’ll admit that entering the data can take time. We’re here to provide resources to help you along the way.
You can benchmark your school against local schools that participate, the entire Prizmah Network, or a specific group of schools that you select.
Turn to Prizmah for help. You can utilize both national and local data of schools similar to your profile to compare where your school sits. And you can showcase how your school sits with other schools with similar profiles and utilize those insights in reporting to stakeholders.
Once you start thinking about how you’d use DASL’s data, you’ll come up with many useful ways to assess your school’s place in the day school landscape.
We would love to talk to you about sharing your school’s data with DASL. Contact Odelia Epstein, Director of the Prizmah Knowledge Center.

DASL data collection is split into two data collection periods, DASL Foundation and DASL BIIS Financial Operations.
That depends on how your school collects data, and how many people are able to work on the data entry. Schools often delegate different portions of the survey to the relevant staff member—for example, an admissions professional completes the admissions section and a fundraising professional completes the advancement section. With multiple professionals working on different sections, it can take up to 1 business day of their time collectively to complete the tool. We believe the benefit of completing the tool and being able to access relevant Jewish day school benchmarking data outweighs the time commitment.
Your school’s data is identifiable except in the area of salary and compensation. No individual compensation data will be identifiable to your school.
There are several good reasons for you to participate.
Here are a few strategies that schools use to input data into DASL.
In this webinar, Orna Siegel, a senior admissions professional and Hilary Hellman, a senior development professional to discuss how the Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL) tool can give you meaningful data to drive your planning and decision-making.
