By now, you’ve started the new school year and begun gathering new academic data on your learners from interim, summative, and perhaps even social and emotional learning (SEL) assessment sources. These data points help you get a more complete picture of where students are today academically and emotionally, find opportunities to focus improvement, and determine next steps in meeting the needs of your student population and even improving school climate.

Join us for an engaging roundtable of how to combine these insights to inform robust and effective instructional programming to promote equity and help students succeed. Our seasoned educator discussants will share ideas in response to key questions.

  • How do you define and explain the terms “data-driven instruction” and “equity” and how are these ideas related?
  • Why is data-driven instruction important as a concept if we want to create equitable school environments?
  • What are some examples of how quantitative and qualitative data points have been used successfully to support instructional decision-making to promote equity and help all students succeed?
  • What strategies do you use to promote use of data effectively that might help others?
  • For those ready to get started on next steps, which funding sources are likely available for increasing data-driven programming?
