Data Driven Decision Making Helps Schools Succeed
School pilot program to boost state test scores
The Press-Enterprise—September 03, 2005
In October 2004, WestEd piloted training on the Data Driven Decision-Making Toolkit, a product developed by REL West, with the Beaumont Unified School Change Team. They used the activities as part of their Data Mentoring series with a focus on Chavez Elementary. Chavez's scores soared and the staff are anxious to dig into their test data again this year. The toolkit includes activities on identifying critical needs, creating a plan to address the needs, and then monitoring progress.
