Leading for Equity through Data Analysis and Plan Alignment​


Presenters: Karla Groth, Senior Director and Nancy Sedgwick, LCAP Director, Assessment, Accountability and Evaluation Unit


Description: Many things have changed over the last few years related to state and federal accountability, including the arrival of the summative Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAC). What has not changed is the goal of preparing all of our students to be college and career ready. In particular, this has included a focus on helping students to achieve the rigor of California State Standards, with a particular emphasis on achieving equity and access for those student groups experiencing the greatest opportunity gaps. This workshop can help you on this journey through thoughtful consideration of the following questions: How can we best use our summative SBAC results? How can we use and align our current plans (LCAP, LEAP, SPSA…) to maximize learning outcomes for our students? What are some research based considerations for creating equity and access for our students?
