This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

Advanced analytics don’t always have to involve a highly sophisticated model. Thomas Price and his team at Atlanta Public Schools developed a multi-variable predictive early warning system between 2015 and 2016, yet buy-in and usage from their targeted audience floundered.

In this roundtable, learn how Thomas and his team revamped and simplified their early warning model to fit the needs of school administrators more directly.
