More than one hundred educators gathered today in Los Angeles for the official kickoff of the CORE Data Collaborative, analyzing data and sharing strategies to improve student outcomes. Joining the network is voluntary for school districts and charter organizations, and it furthers school improvement efforts by giving educators access to data across multiple measures of school and student progress.
Actionable data supports local school improvement efforts,” explained Rick Miller, executive director of the CORE Districts. “This expanding network is helping districts learn from one another and ensuring more students are college and career ready when they graduate.”
The kick-off event included time with renowned educators Michael Fullan and Joanne Quinn, discussing systems change and capacity building. In addition, participants learned new strategies for informing educators, parents and stakeholders about school quality measures; how social-emotional learning is influencing student achievement; and how the CORE Districts’ new academic growth measure helps identify schools moving farther faster.
