Week 2 Discussion 2 – Building a Culture of Quality Data
After completing this week’s Readings and Resources, access the link below and read the article.
To build a culture of quality data, everyone in the building has a part to play. As the leader of the school, you have a crucial part in the process. The National Cooperative Education Statistics System has put together a guide to building that culture. This also reinforces our discussions in a previous course where the importance of involving all stakeholders cannot be diminished.
- As you read this document and focus on the role of the principal and teachers, how do you see this playing out in your building?
- Are you seeing all or most of the suggestions under “Things to Do” (for both teachers and principals) or would you make some changes in your building were you to become the principal?
- What are some other ideas you can take from this article that will help you to build a culture of quality data in your first position as an administrator?
Your initial response is due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
