Can Data Make a Difference?

Learn How to Use Untapped Health Data & ESSER Funds to Build Stronger Schools


Build Healthier Schools to Impact Performance

Fostering cultures of health among pupils and personnel alike in Indiana K-12 schools can sustainably impact academic achievement and employee satisfaction. Actionable insights can be derived from the analysis of health information gathered from student attendance and nurse utilization data, and the analysis of school personnel health behavior and medical claims data.

Aggregating and leveraging this data can help schools determine how to put programs, tools, and resources in place to emerge stronger from the pandemic. This is more attainable and timelier now as schools begin to plan how to allocate $2B in Indiana ESSER funds through American Rescue Plan.

Who Should Attend:

  • Indiana K-12 leaders, HR executives and educators
  • Those responsible for allocating ARP ESSER funds
  • Anyone dedicated to improving the health status of children and adults in Indiana’s school systems


This webinar will provide tangible examples of how the application of funds can best help creating a healthier environment – leading to a more high-performing school. Indiana’s K-12 educational leaders and HR executives are encouraged to attend and learn more about:

  • The Paramount Health Data Project, an organization’s whose research supports that, whether physically or emotionally, poor student health impacts academic outcomes
  • The results from a study of Apex client data that supports how the investment of time and resources in the long-term wellbeing of your workforce returns positive outcomes
  • Learn what health data to target to best understand risk of engagement and retention
  • How schools can best leverage ARP ESSER funds to impact student and personnel wellness

Attendees will receive a toolkit to help them better understand how the Paramount Health Data Project can help address student achievement, how to work more closely with their group health plan advisor to mine plan member data to improve health, and guidelines for ESSER fund allocations.
