In this edLeader Panel featuring the insights of education leaders from Los Angeles County Office of Education, you gain strategies to turn student data into swift action so plans for systematic academic growth adjust, not derail.

There’s no wrong time to start developing a plan of action for key insights and information about your school year. Teachers know their students and their families, and every stakeholder has assessment data. But only the smartest leaders know how to see the trends and make moves that improve literacy systemwide. From replicating the practices of highly effective teachers to pivoting professional development plans to meet the emerging needs, you leave this session knowing what to change, what to focus on, and what questions to keep asking in your quest for year-end success. You learn how to:

  • Uncover the trends and misconceptions for ALL students to ensure equitable outcomes
  • Align goals, priorities, and actions that go beyond the current state and lead to sustainable success
  • Implement strategies to build solid systemwide data discipline and data culture

This recorded edLeader Panel is of interest to K-5 school leaders, district leaders, and education technology leaders.
