Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Massachusetts is refining and expanding its accountability system. Using the revised framework, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will publish data that will show Local Education Agency, school, and subgroup performance across a range of performance indicators, and will use that data to identify schools that need support and improvement, as required by ESSA.
The state will publish 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.
