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.  

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., RISE, K-3 Reading Acadience), accountability requirements and Canyons assessment program (e.g., Acadience, Reading Inventory, READ 180, Math Inventory).
