With the new school year upon us, educators across the country are asking themselves: where are my students starting from? Where do I want them to go?

At its heart, this is data-driven instruction. It's using aligned, regularly scheduled, formative and interim assessments to track student learning and identify steps to move students toward the goal. But we all know that it is  hard to do it well. So the Strategic School Design team at ERS created a video, presentation, and best practices template about data-driven instruction, showcasing the experience of one New York City school - part of a new series of strategic school design resources coming this fall.
New School Design Tools for Data-Driven Instruction
Queens Metropolitan High School in New York City has set up systems and allocated resources to support data-driven instruction. Our new video, interactive presentation, and best practices template provide an overview and get into the nitty-gritty of how it works.

The data-driven instruction tools are just the first of many Strategic School Design materials to come.  We recently hosted an Advisory Council of teachers, district leaders, and others to review these hands-on tools and help us learn what kind of support they need most. 

Strategic School Design is all about organizing school-level resources of people, time, and money to meet students' needs. The 12 strategies, case studies, key questions, and more are explained here.
