Training: Accessing Your District's Academic Data

Here at The Coalition, we prioritize excellence in traditional education that meets the needs of individual students. Academic data can help board members, teachers, parents, and students identify what students have accomplished and how they can improve. Academic data can also inform school leaders and the public about school and district performance. This training event will show you how to access and interpret your school district state testing data, at various levels of aggregation - school, gender, grade, ethnicity, etc. By becoming knowledgeable about academic performance, you can rely on the information to affect policy and improve academic outcomes.
