As an involved parent and educator in our community with a recent M.A. in Educational Administration, I can see the benefit for greater transparency in the policy and decision-making process that immediately affect our neighborhood schools. When the public is informed of the district’s progress and challenges, it allows them to be part of the conversation and increases the likelihood of engagement leading toward success. Analysis and insight of school data is needed to improve upon the work the district has started and help provide accountability. Measuring and evaluating our programs and policies on an ongoing basis can ensure that we work effectively toward our goals and objectives.
