Our Impact

Passaic Public Schools

As far back as elementary school, some students are already less likely to graduate high school on time. Our partners in Passaic used data to keep them on track.

Baltimore County Public Schools

Students’ perceptions of their teachers and schools matter. Our partners in Baltimore set out measure those perceptions and use them to drive system improvements.

Albuquerque Public Schools

What does it take to build trusted teacher evaluation systems? Our partners in Albuquerque designed and conducted an evaluation and compensation pilot to find out.
