School Improvement Network Video Series Outlines How to Close the Achievement Gap for All Students With Data
SALT LAKE CITY—Nov. 7, 2013—School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today released a video segment previewing how to use data to close the achievement gap. The segment previews the data series and outlines the other eight videos in the series available in PD 360.
“In order to help 100 percent of students become college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school, it is vital we close the achievement gap and help every student and educator get what they need to be effective,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Videos and resources like these and others in PD 360 give educators access to tools and information to help them close the achievement gap in their school and make meaningful impact on their students.”
PD 360 is the most widely used online professional development solution in the US. It offers the largest library of expert-produced training videos, powerful support tools and resources, and an online professional learning community of nearly one million educators. Independent research shows that schools and educators who use PD 360 and other tools in the Educator Effectiveness System close the achievement gap and see an average of 19% increase in student proficiency.
In this segment, educators will see the beginning of a two-part system for gathering and evaluating data, and effectually applying it to close the achievement gap in any school.
