2018-19 Statistical Information
Data Rollup has been in place now for many years. Each year, the data is more accurate and complete than the previous year. One of the biggest benefits of Data Rollup is the ability to easily collect statistics. As an example, data from Opening Reports are used to generate the statistics found on our Adventist Education website. You’d be surprised how many people, both inside and outside of the our Adventist education system, visit this page for information! Here is a look at how each of our nine unions stack up in the data.
2019-20 Subscription Resources
There’s a saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” It takes that same NAD “village” of schools working together to get negotiated pricing for many digital PK-12 resources at an affordable price for even our small schools. When schools order through the Adventist Education online store, we are able to consolidate our orders and obtain better pricing for everyone. See the flyer for products, descriptions, and pricing.
