Welcome to DASL!

Comparing your school's data to those from other schools can help you set goals, assess your progress, and make informed decisions. Through our partnership with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) we are excited to bring you DASL - Data and Analysis for School Leadership!

What is DASL?

DASL is the tool that NAES will use to collect statistical data about all Episcopal schools, including early childhood programs. By entering your school's data in DASL, NAES will be able to produce and share statistical reports about the larger community of Episcopal schools. We encourage all Episcopal schools to participate in this data collection project.

Participating schools will have the ability to create customized, comparative reports. NAES and the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES) have partnered with DASL to collect data of particular interest to Episcopal schools, such as chaplain salaries and responsibilities.

You do not need to be a member of NAIS to participate in DASL!

Why should I use DASL?

  • Fewer data collections. When you put your data in DASL, it will go to many of the organizations to which your school belongs.
  • Shorter data collection. Based on characteristics you provide, your school will see only the questions relevant to you. For example, girls’ schools will not be asked for boys’ enrollment.
  • More choices. This year, you will have the option of downloading an Excel template into which you can enter your data, then upload the file to DASL, confirm your data populated correctly, and finalize your entry.
  • Faster system. DASL is on the cloud, with state-of-the art security and speed.

Don't forget - deadline to submit data is October 11th, at 5pm EST.
