Division H Breakfast meeting at AERA

Please join us at the Division H Breakfast Business Meeting and Awards session. Good information, food, company, awards, and door prizes will make it worth your while. Colleen Paeplow and Nancy Baenen are serving as co-chairs this year. 

Time and Location: April 30, 2017, 8-10 am, Henry Gonzalez Convention Center, River Level Room 5.    

Signing Up: It is easiest to just add this to your AERA registration. It is only $12. We will also have tickets at the door if we don't sell out. We are low on the count of donations for door prizes at this point. Please consider donating a small, transportable door prize.  If you can, please fill out the Google doc at this link. Plan to bring it with you or buy it there. You can note on the form if you will bring it to the breakfast or arrange pick-up/drop-off.

We will also need some help with set up (at 7 am) and clean up (probably 10-10:30). Sign up on tab 2 of the same Google sheet. Again, thank you so much for your support.  We look forward to seeing you at the business meeting breakfast!

PDC10: Reimagining School Accountability under ESSA: Opportunities and Challenges for Evaluating School Quality and Student Success

This course provides researchers with development on the accountability and reporting requirements under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and gives participants an opportunity to grapple with the key considerations and research supporting the selection of measures and indicators. The course will begin with discussion of the importance of an educational vision and theory of action for indicators to meet accountability requirements. While broadly applicable to all of the indicators under ESSA, special attention will be given to the indicator of school quality or student success (a.k.a., the “fifth” indicator). This indicator presents an opportunity to define and operationalize school quality and reporting in an accountability system.

If you have any questions about the course or the registration, please contact Rolf Blank, PD committee chair, via email:  rolfb444@gmail.com
