Assessing Equity with Data Webinar

Recorded on May 6, 2021

Featuring Jess DeCarolis and Patrick Halladay from the Vermont Agency of Education

Many school districts identify educational equity as a priority, as seen in their vision statements, mission statements, and/or annual goals. How do we work with administration to ensure implementation, and what can we monitor to track progress? We'll be joined by AOE experts Patrick Halladay, Director of Education Quality and Jess DeCarolis, Director of Student Pathways, who will help identify data sources that can be used to assess districts' current status and those that can aid in monitoring progress in student outcomes.
