BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) -- Four Davis School District schools hope to improve student behavior and academics by closely tracking students daily and turning the information into classroom and school data.

Oak Hills Elementary, in Bountiful, Columbia Elementary School, in Kaysville, and North Layton Junior High and Central Davis Junior High schools, in Layton, are logging information in daily data books.

The books track tardiness, homework assignments, academic scores and classroom behavior.

School officials say the data will help set academic and behavioral goals. It should also help students stay on tracking in attaining goals.

Officials plan to share the data to parents during parent/teacher conferences.
