Case Study: Green Dot Public Schools
Over the ‘16 - ‘17 school year, UpMetrics worked with Green Dot Public Schools, California to track student participation in athletics and study the relationship between athletics and academic performance. While many view athletics as an expensive burden on schools and a distraction from education, there is an interrelationship between participation and major academic indicators at all of the Green Dot Public Schools included in this study.
"Through our partnership with UpMetrics, we have access to data that shows that participating in athletics provides students a far more positive high school experience, and teaches them the skills necessary to be successful in every aspect of their adult life. We look forward to continuing this important work together."
