Prizmah Research

At Prizmah, we believe in the power of data-informed decision-making.

Our Knowledge Center collects and houses data, research and resources for and about Jewish day schools and yeshivas. To support field leaders, we conduct original research, gather and share data, report on Jewish day school trends, and partner with organizations to further important research in Jewish day school education.

Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL)

Prizmah and NAIS have joined forces, enabling the Prizmah Network of schools to utilize the Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL) tool to generate fieldwide data and customized benchmarking reports in the areas of expenses, revenue, tuition, financial aid, enrollment, and fundraising.

School leaders are able to generate actionable data related to all aspects of school operations, including tuition, financial aid, admission, enrollment, salaries, and more. The tool allows for annual data collection, longitudinal reporting and easy-to-configure customized benchmarking reports to compare your school’s figures to national or regional trends and to a comparison group of schools that you choose.

You will be able to compare financial and enrollment metrics to other Jewish day schools, which can help you set goals, assess your progress, and make data-driven decisions.

Time frame: Data Collection June-November 2023
