Module 1: An Urgent Call to Action - Chapter 1.1 The Data Divide

Time: 2:33

This video frames the problem the Data Coach Program sets out to solve – the gap between the data that schools now have and the need to improve results for students. It uses the metaphor of a bridge with data on one side and results on the other to make the point that many schools are lacking a process to connect data to results. And, unfortunately, it is our students who are drowning in the data divide.

Reflect and Dialogue:

  1. What steps are you taking to build the bridge between data and results in your school or district?
  2. What are the components of your bridge?
