Playbook for Data-Driven Decision Making
While many educators have already grounded themselves in the ‘why’ behind whole child systems and MTSS, the ‘how’ can be more elusive. Data are often stuck in silos, collaboration can be stifled by disjointed processes, and assessment systems prove to be insufficient.
We created this playbook to shed light on how the right tools and materials can come together to solve these challenges of ‘how.’ We spotlight the incredible work of several Illuminate schools and districts and how they use Illuminate’s solutions and services to understand students’ academic and SEB needs, target instruction and intervention, build and sustain system-level structures, promote equity in opportunities and outcomes, and deepen assessment and data literacy through embedded professional learning. We also share ways that some districts combine multiple solutions to overcome some of the greatest challenges our schools face today.
