Academic impact shows up in many ways, whether it’s through state assessment results, graduation rates, or anecdotal stories about student progress. However, it can be challenging for districts to determine the best ways to demonstrate that impact for school-level reporting, district stakeholders, and their communities.

Meet Coppell Independent School District. During this engaging edLeader Panel, school and district leaders will share how they established teams and structures to track academic impact, meeting state requirements and demonstrating growth for community-based accountability. They start by asking, “What is it we want our students to learn?” and “How will we know if the students are learning?” then drive strategies through their MTSS.

Learn how Coppell makes real impact through:

  • Data-based decision-making practices
  • A methodical rollout of MTSS
  • Building capacity for all teachers and staff to use data in everyday practices
  • Leveraging a data platform to identify and track student impact

This edLeader Panel will be of interest to K-12 school leaders, district leaders, and education technology leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
