ADMS Recommendation_Board of Education_030111 4 Our Journey LUSD has been using DataDirector, our current ADMS provider since March 2008. DataDirector is scheduled to undergo a significant user interface change in the late summer that would require significant training of our district’s users. Under DataDirector’s new management, customer service and system reliability quality has declined significantly. Frequent down times for the system’s servers, especially at the end of each quarter, and programming errors have become the norm. 4
