Responsibilities

Our office provides leadership and technical expertise for the district in the areas of State assessments, district assessments, student achievement, and accountability.

We disseminate this actionable information to school educators, district administrators, the Board of Education, school community councils, and the public.  Our information supports student-centered data-driven decisions by building leadership teams and district leadership.

Our office is responsible for ensuring compliance with state, and federal testing requirements (e.g., Core CRTs, Direct Writing Assessment, K-3 Reading), accountability requirements (AYP, U-PASS) and Canyons assessment program (e.g., Explore, Plan, ACT, Iowa Test of Basic Skills, SRI, MyAccess).

Goals

Our overarching goal is to support and monitor student learning through partnerships with our schools.  We strive to provide educators and district leaders with the best analysis and information regarding student achievement.

We support our district’s academic achievement plan where every child will graduate prepared for success in college and other post-secondary training settings.
