As pioneers in a fast-paced, dynamic sector, educators are tackling data leadership with energy and commitment. As leaders develop tools and get more practiced at using them, it can be tempting to turn every decision into an exercise in data analysis. In response to that temptation, it’s good to remember the saying that, “not everything we measure matters, and not everything that matters can be measured.”
Start the conversation with your staff and supervisors by asking them how they use data. Ask them what data they wish they had. Connect with parents and families to see what they already know, what they need to know, and what they wish they could figure out in the future. Then, find systems, platforms, and training that can help all your stakeholders realize the promise of data, delivered.
