Academic Gaps: Using Data to Stop the Slide & Move Forward

With academic gaps growing and affecting students of color and those who live in poverty disproportionately, it is imperative that schools identify clear, data-informed strategies to ‘stop the slide’. In this session, we focus on academic gaps and remediation strategies and supports that remain student centered and actionable in practice. Addressing the gaps that have formed is a key part of any change management strategy entering the new school year. We will go deeper into possible ‘systems’ that can be created to close academic gaps, based on data and scenarios. An academic gap system is a closed loop, meaning data that we collect to institute the system can be used to gauge its effect as well and ensure that the intervention is sustainable and actionable for all stakeholders involved. Participants will conclude the session by outlining a strategic plan reflecting what the 5 identified gap-closing approaches might look like in their own realities and get peer feedback that will be used to help implement these approaches.

Zoom link will be sent after registration.
