Strategic Data Check-ins

Strategic Data Check-ins are the backbone of student success in Community Schools. These check-ins offer an opportunity for school leaders to build technical and analytical capacity in their use of the data sorter. The schedule and frequency for check-ins varies slightly by the grade bands represented in a school. Each semester, schools may complete the following data check-ins:

 High School Elementary/Middle School
 Graduation Planning and Programming  Attendance
 Credit Gaps Analysis Supports and Referrals
 Attendance Formative Assessments
 Regents Planning and Preparation 
 Marking Period Grade Analysis 

If you are unfamiliar with using Google G-Suite and Sheets(the basis for your schools Data Tools) you might want to visit the New Visions Resource page. You can find various videos, slides and 1-pagers across a variety of topics and grade levels related to Strategic Data Check-ins.

Weekly Data Meetings

As a best practice in educating the whole child, Community Schools are encouraged to hold a weekly meeting to discuss bright areas in student successes and identify places in need of additional support. These Student Success Summits are centered around student data. The student data sorter allows schools to access real-time academic, behavioral and attendance for all students. Using this data tool during the weekly meeting and regularly through the school year allows provides school leadership to quickly identify opportunities for improving outcomes for students.
