  • 1. Collaborative Inquiry as a Vehicle for Using Data
  • 2. Earl and Katz (2006) stress that data use should not be seen as separate from planning and routine decisions in schools. Rather, data should inform an ongoing process of analysis, insight, new learning and changes in practice. Leaders who use data well believe that schools can make a difference. Their model of education change is focused on changing schools to help ensure better services and better learning for all students.

  • 9. Activity In groups, take your data and imagine you are about to create your School Improvement Plan for Student Achievement (SIPSA). After a quick look through; What areas may you focus on? What focus may some of your PLCs take? What teachers would you invite to join in your PLCs? What class data would you gather or ask teachers to bring to the PLCs? Is there any misleading or data that doesnt sit quite right? Perhaps an area that requires more digging?
