In March 2017, the California Department of Education will publish California School Dashboards for the first time. These web-based data dashboards will show Local Education Agency (LEA), school, and subgroup performance across a range of performance indicators. In the future, the data in the dashboards will be used to identify LEAs that need technical assistance, as required by the Local Control Funding Formula, and schools that need support and improvement, as required by the Every Student Succeeds Act.
The state dashboards will publish lagging data, from the previous academic year or even earlier. Districts including Novato Unified and Alameda Unified are using Schoolzilla’s new district performance-management tool, Mosaic District Progress Monitoring to get ahead of this. What tools will your district use to monitor progress against state indicators in real time, so you know you’re on track to meet state benchmarks?
If your district is interested in monitoring your district’s key performance indicators in real time, but is hoping for additional financial support to make it happen, this resource will give you some ideas for where to look.
