Index uses multiple measures, includes nation’s first use of social and emotional
learning indicators in school district educational accountability systems
Providing an important new example for education leaders and policy makers working to
develop and strengthen educational accountability systems, CORE Districts today introduced
its new School Quality Improvement Index at the California School Boards Association
conference in San Diego.
The Index uses a new system of multiple measures to provide schools and teachers with
more and better information to improve student learning. In addition to academic
achievement, the Index includes a first in nation use of Social, Emotional Learning and School
Climate indicators. The Index also makes more students visible by including results for any
student group with 20 or more students.
