The M. A. Rooney Foundation team works collaboratively with district leaders to review trend data, identify priorities, and create measurable goals that are included in a forward-thinking Success Plan. Assisting in curriculum and assessment audits, streamlining efficiencies with intentional and measurable actions that lead to sustainable change are systematically monitored.
Data! Data! Data! Classroom and District Data Reports and Analysis School districts, schools, teachers, and kids have lots of assessment data. We collaborate with you to manage what is important and to identify what leads to increased student achievement. Tailored professional learning opportunities provide real time support in how to most efficiently and effectively utilize data to drive instruction.
Our Foundation also customizes reports with district partners to maximize student success. Imagine if all of your teachers had all student assessment data for each class they teach on one page! Teachers at districts we support receive one-page classroom Roster Reports that include all assessment data for student they serve. The reports are customized to include district and state assessment data and are provided throughout the school year. Teachers no longer have to seek data from multiple locations to monitor student growth.
“Own It!” Accountability is essential at every level. We share strategies and best practices that ensure ownership for kids, families, teachers, and administrators. Student achievement can be monitored in meaningful ways that involve stakeholders in ways that lead to higher levels of accountability and greater success.
Data Management System The M. A. Rooney Foundation provides school district partners with a proven process and platform for collecting, warehousing, and reporting on current and historical student demographic and achievement data. It is our belief that you can’t manage what you don’t measure, and the Data Management System will provide school leaders with critical data to support improved decision making, to guide instructional changes in the classroom, to track individual student performance, and to support a data driven problem solving culture.
These capabilities combined with Professional Learning and Strategic Planning will enable educators to respond quickly and effectively to eliminate student performance challenges. Data Strategy The M. A. Rooney team works collaboratively with the district IT team and educators to determine the data needs of the district. Our process includes the following steps for success: 1.
