Pillars of Current Education Initiatives: Race to the Top Great People Quality Standards and Assessments Turnaround of Lowest-Achieving Schools Data System to Improve Instruction (Data Pillar)
Quality Standards and Assessments Success must be measured in terms of individuals meeting standards relating to success in school High quality standards for all students
Data Systems (The Data Pillar) 1.Review school system data to identify characteristics of potential dropouts and areas of greatest need. 2.Identify target groups using individual student data. 3.Develop an Information Management System for documenting that services meet the needs of the students served. 4. Develop an Information Management System for measuring student success against quality standards and assessments.
