How District Leaders Use Data to Provide Support and Accountability to School Leaders

What happens when a large at-risk school district pairs its Title I director (Ed.D.) with its Student Assessment director (Ph.D.), tasking them to increase school achievement in its 27 Title I schools? Title I principals in Granite School District received novel data supports, visualizations, and training to build their capacity—all integrated into a scope and sequence of monthly training. School data became the glue that connected schools’ needs assessments, identifying evidence-based strategies, and accountability for spending all school funding sources. In this presentation, you will hear lessons learned, future plans, and receive links to training and other resources used with our Title I principals.
