Many schools/school systems are data wealthy, but are challenged by the process of utilizing data analyses to directly address the widening achievement gap between and within student groups. This session will equip teachers and school leaders with tools necessary to promote a school-wide/district move beyond using data to inform and toward using data to perform.
