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.

Capstone Roundtable — De-Mystifying Accountability Targets in Massachusetts Limited seats remain
Limited Capacity filling up

In 2018, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education introduced a new accountability system to comply with the Every Student Succeeds Act. While similar to the previous accountability framework, the new requirements, combined with a new standardized assessment, resulted in an opaque and complex system for school leaders to understand. The simultaneous release of results and targets after the school year was over provided an additional layer of complexity.
Come learn about how SDP Fellow Monica Hogan and Boston Public Schools created tools to help school leaders understand a complex, new accountability system and enabled progres monitoring throughout the year.
