Honing in on the Data that Matters for your School
From state assessments to common assessments and from discipline data to college projection data, schools are inundated with data these days. While the data tells a story about your school, presenting this data to your faculty or families can overwhelm and disinterest them quickly. Learn about how the leadership at Newton North High School used a very focused data set, over a period of many years, to propel the community’s work on narrowing achievement gaps. We will also share how we are shifting our priorities to explore new data sets that are raising interesting questions about how schools should define success. We will share the success NNHS has had by targeting particular data, how we try to make sense of complicated data, and how we are shifting our focus to different data sets to address new needs.
Amy Winston has worked as Newton North HS since 1999. She taught physics, was the Department Head for Science and Technology/Engineering for 10 years and is now in her fourth year as Vice Principal.
Henry Turner in his 7th year as a high school principal, having spent four years as principal of Bedford High School and is now in his 3rd year as principal of Newton North High School. He has an Ed.D in Education Leadership from Boston College and his dissertation focused on the role of distributed leadership in gaining acceptance of large-scale technology initiatives.
