Overview - District Analysis, Review, & Assistance Tools - Targeted Assistance & Accountability - Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education | AYSRH | Scoop.it


The District Analysis and Review Tools (DARTs) turn the Department's vast amount of data into valuable, easily consumable information. The DARTs offer snapshots of district and school performance, allowing users to easily track select data elements over time, and make sound, meaningful comparisons to the state or to "comparable" organizations. The data elements in each DART tool are linked to a broader strategic framework defining the characteristics of effective educational organizations and cover a broad range of district and school interests including demographic, assessment, student support, educator, financial, and achievement gap data. The DARTs, in combination with other tools found on this website, may be utilized by district and school leaders in enacting each of the six district standards upon which district reviews, improvement planning, and other forms of accountability and assistance are based: Leadership & Governance, Curriculum & Instruction, Assessment, Human Resources & Professional Development, Student Support, and Financial & Asset Management.
