This attendance dashboard was developed for a school district that wanted to enable administrators, principals, and teachers to see attendance data for students at each of their sites.

The dashboard was developed to allow each level of staff to drill down from their respective levels all the way to individual student attendance records.

A final report focusing on an individual student allows that sheet to be shared at parent teacher meetings.

Automatic PDF generation of reports was accomplished via tabcmd.


My current area of interests is developing well designed data visualizations that are unique, informative, useful and engaging. Additionally I’m focused on combining data visualization and generative art practices to create generative art/visualizations, and then useing various production methods to make physical representations of the generated works.
