The new integrated model of California's ESSA plan uses multiple data points-graduation rates, suspension rates, test scores, and more - to give a more complete picture of school success. A new and key component of the data is College and Career Readiness. The release of the Dashboard data provides administrators, educators and stakeholders the opportunity to examine how well their students are prepared for the challenges of college and careers. Understanding SBAC (CASSPP) results can provide direction for ongoing instructional changes that drive/affect student achievement. In this workshop, participants will examine what the results of CASSPP mean in terms of student readiness for college and careers; how documents can inform instruction and how to talk to parents, students and stakeholders about the test results. Yolo COE is partnering with California ASCD to offer this dynamic workshop led by Sue Z. Beers, a leader in instruction, curriculum, student assessment and school improvement.
