Administrator Academy for Data Analysis with Discovery Assessment

District and school administrators will study easy-to-read reports with a focus on analyzing and interpreting district-wide, school-wide and classroom data. Leaders will participate in hands-on activities to prepare data-based task assignments and create action plans for their faculty. These action plans will include grade level, individual teacher, and student subgroup inclusive information used to make decisions based on fact. The plans will also include resources to guide re-teaching strategies and interventions, and use Progress Zone to monitor progress.
