In this first workshop in the series "Putting the Pieces Together: Preventing Schools from Being Data-Rich But
Information Poor”, participants will be exposed to what it means to be a data-driven school or district. Real world
experience along with research-based insight will be shared to give a deep understanding of the accountability
process in Mississippi. Hands-on practice will also be utilized to allow participants the opportunity to analyze,
prioritize and create an improvement plan from simulated data. School leaders will also review their current plans
of improvement to determine whether the strategic planning process in place is a tool that will improve student
achievement (actions that add value) or an end in itself. Administrators will be presented with strategies for
consistent monitoring and evaluation of these plans and most importantly, leaders will become confident in the
implementation of their strategic plans with the confidence that their professional practices truly will influence
student achievement.
Workshop B
