You’ve Got Data
Abstract: Tropic Isles Elementary School in North Fort Myers, FL—a Title 1 school with 900 students—contributes some of its success to the data systems it has in place, including data-driven decision making, measures alignment, and student and staff accountability. As part of its in-house data system to track student achievement, the school uses a strategy map to spell out long-term goals and a strategic plan to map out short-term plans. By developing the data system to track student achievement, the school has been able to align the data collection across grade-levels and within the entire school.
