Narrow Your Focus: Using Data to Pinpoint Inequities and Drive Improvements

75-min | In-Person
Focus Areas: Data and Measurement; Equity, Diversity, and Belonging; Improvement Capability; System Transformation Toward Continuous Improvement

Data are only as powerful as the improvements they inspire, and too much data can lead to inaction or distraction. In this session, participants will explore how to facilitate networked improvement by honing in on high-leverage data with an eye toward equity. Over time, the RISE Network has embraced a “less is more” approach to providing partners with actionable and calendared data tools, supporting schools in achieving double-digit gains in Grade 9 on-track rates and students graduating with a postsecondary plan. RISE will share experiences and tools to support others in pursuit of their north-star and equity-centered student outcome goals.
