Congrats to Dr. Dillon, who had an article published in EdSurge yesterday on bridging “big data” and “small data”-- the same topic he shared with us last week!

Read it (and share with your colleagues) here!

The St. Louis community of data champions convened again today to discuss monitoring progress against their districts’ goals. It was a wide-ranging and fascinating conversation-- thank you for each of you for your thoughtfulness and expertise!

If it’s helpful to you, please find a copy of those eight “essential questions” here and the slide deck below. Data-Driven St. Louis II deck (1).pdf (7.4 MB)
