Overview

Overview

The Finance and Accountability Score provides a basic measure for organizational health. At this time, it comprises 100% of a charity's Overall Score.

Program Expense Ratio

27.78%

Higher effect on score

More data  


The Program Expense Ratio is determined by Program Expenses divided by Total Expense (average of most recent three 990s).


We believe that organizations, such as this one, spending less than half of their budget on program expenses (three year average) are simply not living up to their mission. Charities demonstrating such gross inefficiency automatically receive zero points for their Liabilities to Assets Ratio score, in addition to their Program Expense Ratio score.


For a passing score, Charity Navigator looks for a ratio of 70% or higher. Charities in the 50%-70% range receive zero points for their Program Expense Ratio score. Charities that fall below 50% will receive zero points for both of their financial metric scores, Program Expense Ratio AND Liabilities to Assets Ratio.

...   Impact & Results


Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

NASDTEC promotes: High standards for educators Teacher mobility across state lines Comprehensive personnel screening Clearinghouse on teacher discipline The purpose of this Association, which was founded in 1928, is to exercise leadership in matters related to the preparation and certification of professional school personnel. State agencies and agencies in the District of Columbia, Guam, the United States Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) and governmental entities outside the United States that have major administrative responsibility for the preparation and certification of professional personnel for the schools, or for professional standards and practices relative to such personnel, may become voting members of the Association upon compliance with membership requirements set forth in the Constitution, Bylaws, and rules of the Association.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

NASDTEC's primary strategy is to facilitate conversations among members that address the above goals. These conversations combined with the development of working partnerships with other related organizations provides a practical and working platform for addressing shared issues.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

NASDTEC is a small organization that utilizes virtual resources to control overhead. Furthermore, NASDTEC's funding model is sustainable and not dependent on soft grant money. Working under the oversight of a member-selected Executive Board the NASDTEC staff are focused on supporting the day-to-day work of our members and thereby bringing real value to being a member of NASDTEC.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

The NASDTEC Executive Board are selected by the members and part of the board's responsibility is regular contact with the members the board member represents, this supports important conversations that feed back to the staff. In addition, we conduct a annual survey of members to determine member satisfaction with the services provided through their membership in NASDTEC. Combined with strategy sessions that are built into each board meeting we are able to quickly respond to important issues that arise.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

NASDTEC has been facilitating important conversations across state boundaries that have resulted in: (1) a national database of educators who have had adverse actions taken against their certificates/licenses; (2) an Interstate Agreement that 47 states participate in that supports mobility of educators across state lines, (3)
