Abstract
Administrators guide and support stakeholders and students to make the school a better place for

learning and working. In order for the administrator be able to do this, it needs to acquire and

analyze the school data. Data should be analyzed regularly to be able to understand know what it

is happening in the school. As stated in the book: Data analysis for continuous school

improvement. Pp. 14,” Data analysis is focused when schools are clear on their purpose and clear

on what they expect students to know and be able to do, and when students and the community

are aware of these expectations” A good focus data should be planned, implemented, evaluated

and finally improved.
