Justin Gumiran is a Data Strategist with the Network for College Success. He supports schools in understanding the stories behind the numbers and strategic planning to meet intentional goals.
Prior to joining NCS, Justin worked for Chicago Public Schools, working with both in progress and end-of-year data, to help schools, families, and other stakeholders engage with both the narratives creating outcomes, as well as the progress different schools are making toward improvement. He also taught both middle and high school.

He believes that the change starts with belief, and that Data Strategy is turning belief into planning and action.
