On-Track Data Teams

Collaborative on-track data team structures help schools meet the holistic needs of every student. On-track data teams bring together a diverse group of educators (e.g., grade-level teams) in regular, data-driven collaboration to support a specific group of students. Educators share their unique perspectives and experiences working with a common set of students in an effort to advance shared student outcome goals.

Teams use a combination of data, protocols, norms, and team roles to engage in evidence-based and solution-oriented conversations. Protocols are strengths-based and encourage teams to recognize student assets and progress before diagnosing and prioritizing developmental areas. Likewise, protocols keep conversations rooted in data and evidence. Through this process, teams identify actionable next steps and personalized interventions. On-track data teams regularly revisit intervention plans to track implementation and progress.
