Data-Driven School Improvement: Making the Grade for Students Experiencing Homelessness

Friday February 1, 2019
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Effective school improvement programs use data to drive decision making, but where do you look when the data doesn’t seem to be getting to the heart of the problem? This workshop will help building and district leaders to create school improvement plans aimed at impacting those students who are often among the lowest performing and the most at-risk of dropping out; students experiencing homelessness. Use your data to drive improvements in school climate, academic achievement, attendance, and program collaboration. In this session we will review the types of data that schools collect for state and local government, and through school climate surveys, to help you take a more detailed look at your data and find some quick wins for impacting student achievement. The presenters will also offer best practice approaches to creating programming that meets the unique needs of these students and families, including rural and American Indian populations.
