Accountability & Improvement (A&I) leads the analysis and interpretation of data for accountability, accreditation, school improvement and strategic planning processes to attain the district's vision and mission.

Data Strategy (DS) provides school and district leaders with actionable information to address five core areas of school improvement: student demographics, school culture and climate, student achievement, rigorous course work and quality instruction.

Grants and Special Projects (GSP) assists teachers and administrators in generating external funding that supports district priorities, leading to improved student achievement.

Research & Evaluation (R&E) provides support to inform district-wide decision making through primary research, program evaluation and the calculation and reporting of Student Learning Growth (SLG) scores. In addition, we encourage and collaborate with external institutions in developing targeted research studies that align with district priorities.

Test Development & Measurement (TDM) supports informed educational decisions with results from quality locally-created or selected and state-required assessments that are administered to the highest professional standards, then interpreted with precision and integrity.
