Writing Your FFY 2019 SSIP: Continuity and Change
This webinar was designed for those who are new to the SSIP process as well as seasoned SSIP coordinators who would like to learn more about reporting options and requirements for the April 2021 SSIP submission. IDC staff discussed important content to include in the SSIP report, reporting options including a new optional template, and issues to consider when deciding on an optimal format for reporting. A state presenter shared the state’s FFY 2019 SSIP reporting plans, including steps the state will take to ensure that its SSIP report is useful for state decisionmaking and stakeholder engagement.
Developing Your Stakeholder Engagement Plan for the New SPP/APR Package
This webinar provided an overview of the expanded stakeholder engagement requirements for the FFY 2020–2025 SPP/APRs. Presenters shared strategies for organizing and involving stakeholders in the development and implementation of their SPP/APRs. Webinar participants shared their ideas and approaches for developing a stakeholder engagement plan. Throughout the presentation, IDC staff highlighted helpful resources to support meaningfully involving stakeholders in decision making.
Setting Baselines and Targets in a World of Questionable Data Quality
All states are developing a new SPP/APR. They may consider new baselines, as appropriate, and must set targets for results indicators. This baseline and target setting will be complicated because states collected and reported the most recent SPP/APR data available during the COVID-19 school closures, which affected the completeness, accuracy, and quality of the data. With these issues in mind, IDC presenters shared considerations for determining baselines and strategies states may use to set targets for SPP/APR indicators. Two states took a dive into several SPP/APR indicators to share their plans for setting baselines and targets and engaging their stakeholders in the process.
The Changing Landscape of Indicator 3: Assessment and Engaging Stakeholders in Baseline and Target Setting
During this webinar, we reviewed the changes to Indicator 3 of the Part B SPP/APR and took a deep dive into how some states are preparing and working with stakeholders to set baselines and targets for the indicator. State panelists addressed data quality concerns due to COVID-19 closures and reopenings, as well as the 2021 testing flexibilities and how they affect setting baselines and targets. Speakers presented strategies for identifying diverse stakeholders and presenting complex data to help stakeholders understand the data. In addition, state panelists revealed their plans for working with stakeholders, including the data they plan to share with stakeholders, how they plan to present these data, what input they will ask for, and how they plan to document ongoing stakeholder input.
State Stories: Helping Districts Understand Significant Disproportionality
Do you wonder how other states make districts aware of and help them understand their data related to significant disproportionality? How do states help districts understand their responsibilities when the state has identified them with significant disproportionality? What kinds of early warning systems do states use so districts understand when they are at risk for significant disproportionality? State panelists answered these questions and more during this IDC webinar. Attendees learned about proactive strategies states are taking to help districts understand and use data related to significant disproportionality, as well as other supports states provide for districts both before and after their identification with significant disproportionality.
State Stories: Celebrating and Supporting Improvement in Districts Identified With Significant Disproportionality
States are identifying districts with significant disproportionality and supporting them to address the root causes of the significant disproportionality. But are states seeing districts show improvement in significant disproportionality? What changes are districts achieving? How are states supporting these districts to improve the schooling experiences that lead to the identified disproportionalities and evaluate their progress? State and LEA panelists shared the small and large changes they have achieved, support strategies they have used, and lessons they have learned. Participants learned about ways states are working with districts to measure increments of change, evaluate progress, and make midcourse adjustments in policy and practice to address significant disproportionality.
Let Your Data Guide You: Making Connections and Using Results From Part B Indicators 1, 2, 13, and 14
Staff from IDC and the (NTACT:C) shared resources and discussed how they support states with Part B Indicators 1, 2, 13, and 14. State co-presenters discussed how partnerships between data and program staff enhance the state’s work on these indicators. State staff shared strategies and lessons learned for translating high-quality data into effective data use to identify trends, support target setting, and select appropriate evidence-based practices as well as discussed how reviewing the results of these related indicators as a group can help improve understanding of the system and drive next steps.
