New Name - Same Mission

Welcome to School Data Leadership!  We've dropped the "technology" and added some "data" 

Why?  Because it's not about the hardware or the equipment or the network. 

It's about the data.  And the people who manage the data. 

Our Mission remains unchanged:  to promote the effective, efficient, and confidential use of data to improve teaching, learning and school administration.


(P.S. - other than the name change, the site is exactly the same.  No need to create a new account - your old account works just fine, though you will need to update your bookmarks).



Our Core Beliefs:



Bring together the resources needed to effectively run a California public school and ensure compliance with all those pesky (but important!) rules and regulations. We pull in CALPADS, ESSA, CNIPS, Tech news, CAASPP and other resources - anything we need to support the data needs of our schools.




Turn confusing policies and regulations into easy-to-follow instructions and simple, actionable steps. Develop checklists, guides, and other support docs. Leverage web 2.0 tools to simplify document management.  Get help when you need it.





Leverage the expertise of our members by tapping into assessment experts, vendors, teachers, parents, technology gurus, and others through our online community, our "leadership voices", and our resource area.  Build good resources ONCE and SHARE!
