I don’t have access to our county Data Warehouse information so I used the MI School Data portal. I found the above information in regards to demographics. Our Title 1 staff and administrators have been going through a process to have our school become a Title 1 school.
I believe that this kind of information is vital in this climate of “mandated learning.” There are so many factors that have an impact on children both positively and negatively that must be considered if we really care about the education of children.
This is a screenshot of 3rd grade reading data for Potterville.
This kind of data is useful as a starting point and when combined with other data (acheivement, demographic, process and maybe even perception) can be used to begin to ask questions, understand and improve teaching and learning.
