Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Connecticut is refining and expanding its Next Generation Accountability System. Using the revised framework, the Connecticut State Department of Education will publish data that will show Local Education Agency, school, and subgroup performance across a range of performance indicators, and will continue to use that data to identify schools that need support and improvement. The CSDE is tentatively planning to identify new schools for support in Categories 4 and 5 in December 2018.
The state will use lagging data, from the previous academic year or even earlier. This presents a challenge for districts wanting 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.
