Board Item - G.-1.

CORE Data Collaborative Services Agreement.

Superintendent's Recommendation:

Approve CORE Data Collaborative Services Agreement between CORE Districts and the Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) for the purpose of data analysis, and professional learning during the 2016-2017 school year, and authorize the superintendent or designee to execute same.


The CORE Data Collaborative Services Agreement allows the SUHSD to learn from the sophisticated data analysis that the CORE districts have developed over the past five years.  Sweetwater will receive annual Multi-Metric School and LEA Data Dashboards with performance benchmarked against Peers across California.  These dashboards will provide opportunities for SUHSD staff to analyze strengths and weaknesses of their school programs and partner with schools and districts across the State of California to increase best practices and jointly address areas of deficiency through professional collaboration.  This combination of data sharing and professional learning will aid the SUHSD learning community in fulfilling both the letter and spirit of our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).


This partnership includes opportunities for the SUHSD team to collaborate twice annually with counterparts in the CORE districts to share solutions and enhance practice through professional dialogue.


This agreement provides the opportunity for SUHSD to partner with the Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) Research Collaborative.  The benefit of this partnership is that SUHSD will participate in and benefit from the latest research on educational practices with the intent of leading continuous improvement for our students and bridging the gap between research, policy, and practice.
