I wrote an 1,800-word article about for CASBO’s quarterly magazine.
CASBO Spring13 – Digging into data:
When it comes to quantitatively measuring student learning, we hear a lot about standardized testing and the tracking of student performance results to assess the success – or failure – of school districts.
But while teaching students is the primary objective of school districts, there are many other measures of a district’s overall success, especially when taking business efficiency into consideration.
From the CASBO website:
“The California Association of School Business Officials is the premier resource on business practices and policies for California’s public education community. CASBO, a nonprofit statewide professional association, is dedicated to promoting excellence and professionalism in all aspects of school business. Founded in 1928, CASBO serves more than 3,000 members by providing professional development, promoting best practices strategies and creating professional collaboration and networking opportunities.”
