Data for Student Success (Data4SS)
Data4SS: Data for Student Success
The MCISD is excited to offer to all our public schools and districts the Data4SS ("data force") project professional development and on-line tools. These rich resources from Calhoun ISD will enable our local buildings and districts to more effectively gather, interpret, analyze, report, and act upon student performance data. Each school building is asked to send a team of educators to this fall's training. MCISD Data4SS Coaches will work with each building over the course of the school year to support improved use of data, leading to improved student learning.
Below are the resources from the training binders, should you need extra copies. We are very grateful to Calhoun ISD for creating most of these materials, and we encourage you to visit their Data for Student Success website at: http://www.data4ss.org.
