Using Data to Make Parents Partners in School Improvement Efforts

ESSA requires states and districts to rate schools based on multiple data points (measures) that collectively comprise a state’s “accountability system.” What does it mean when a school is rated as “low performing”?

This short blog from the Data Quality Campaign emphasizes the importance of parents being informed about and understanding the data measures used to rate schools, so that they can be partners in school improvement activities. The blog also connects you with a 2019 report from the Center for Education Policy, which takes a look at how many schools states identified as struggling in this first year of states identifying struggling schools based on ESSA’s requirements. Read the blog and access multiple related resources on school data, report cards, and the value of parent involvement.

This article addresses how the PTI works collaboratively with higher ed professionals to locate and establish families as co-educators in an undergraduate special education course on families for pre-service special education teachers.
