Assessment, Research & Evaluation

The Assessment, Research and Evaluation staff supports a model of continuous improvement for the school district by providing data on critical factors that impact educational experiences and achievement, from instruction to professional development and school culture. This includes overseeing state and district-level assessments, collecting data for purposes of program evaluation, supporting administrators and teachers in using data to inform instruction, and providing research opportunities to center student voice. All of our work involves using multiple forms of data, analysis, and guidance aligned with the district’s Strategic Mission.
