PACE Event

Understanding the School Impact on Academic and Social Emotional Learning

Lessons from the CORE Districts

A key aspect of California’s new policy approach is a multiple measures data system that includes local measures of school performance. As school districts across California consider what to measure and how to measure it, there is much to be learned from the CORE districts.

In this webinar, PACE will highlight two of CORE’s innovative data approaches: their school impact model and student surveys of social-emotional learning. Researchers, representatives from the CORE Districts, and two district leaders will discuss the importance of using a school growth model to understand school performance, share new research on applying a growth model to social-emotional learning surveys, and discuss how to think about the reporting of academic and social-emotional measures for different purposes and users.

Panelists include:

  • Jennifer Bourgeois, Director of Research, Evaluation, and School Improvement, Corona-Norco Unified School District
  • Dave Calhoun, Senior Associate, CORE Districts
  • James Feffer, Director of Assessment and Data Analysis, Palm Springs Unified School District
  • Hans Fricke, Director of Quantitative Research, PACE
  • Andrew Rice, Chief Operating Officer, Education Analytics

Moderated by Heather J. Hough, Executive Director, PACE
