Data Collaborative Community

The CORE Data Collaborative unites our eight districts with other districts across California to ensure CORE innovations and insights can impact students throughout the state. We create opportunities for educators across urban, suburban and rural districts to work together, in person and online, to compare data and research across districts and get a clearer picture of strengths and challenges.

The CORE Data Collaborative focuses on school and student improvement through highly productive, meaningful partnerships between member school districts.

Educators in the collaborative can access a complete picture of school performance, including information that is not collected by or available through the state. School and district profiles include locally-driven measures of growth in student academic performance, a middle school indicator noting students’ high school readiness, chronic absenteeism rates, students’ social-emotional skills, school climate measures and English learner reclassification rates, as well as state-driven measures of student test scores and graduation rates.

By being able to compare schools’ performance on multiple measures to the performance of similar schools throughout the state, educators get a clearer picture of strengths and challenges in each area. The CORE Data Collaborative is supported by a research partnership with Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) to provide real-time, research-based feedback that improves student learning; informs policy; and provides breakthrough findings about school improvement.

In addition to virtual meetings, the Data Collaborative brings together its members in person twice a year to share learnings and to better analyze performance and outcome data.
