Course Description

In order to serve diverse communities and be responsive to the needs of changing populations, we must evolve as informed practitioners who make evidence-based decisions and remain strategically adaptive. Data cycles must drive educator thinking, planning, and practice so that we improve outcomes for all students. To make determinations about those needs, a comprehensive assessment and analysis process should be in place, with involvement from multiple stakeholders, to generate intentionality and effectiveness in equity leadership and instructional practice. Multiple data points, which include diverse, stakeholders, learning walk observations, and community surveys will be utilized to distinguish root causes from contributing factors.

The focus will be triangulation of those points to determine performance trends, identify outliers, and begin to uncover equity issues, including access, achievement, participation, and representation across all student groups. Determination of strengths and gaps for particular subpopulations, campuses, and districts will support data based comparative analysis. Illumination in these areas will serve as the foundation for examination of policies, procedures, and practices. Educators can then draw conclusions regarding effectiveness of systems and structures, creating the desired outcomes. These conclusions should lead to innovation, personalization, and continued advocacy and action for equitable results.
