Using Data to Drive Continuous School Improvement

Education data is one of the most powerful tools to inform, engage, and create opportunities for individuals along their education and workforce journeys—and it’s much more than test scores.  Students need to understand if they are on track for graduation, families need to understand how to support their children’s education, teachers need to know what progress their students are making, school and district leaders need to understand where to prioritize coaching and resources effectively to improve student outcomes, and policymakers need to know what interventions work and are cost effective. Access to usable and timely data will help each of these stakeholders make better informed decisions and will help ensure that there are great schools for every kid.
