SDP Convening 2017 has ended

Communities around the world are embracing the philosophy of "open" to crowdsource knowledge and resources to fuel solutions to intractable problems. The 2017 SDP Convening will be about sharing data tools, research, ideas, and insights in order to make our own collective work better for kids. Join us from May 17 - 19, 2017 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel (606 Congress St, Boston, MA 02210).

What are the challenges and successes experienced by urban districts implementing college readiness and access programs?

Monique Gagnon, Administrator of Research and Evaluation at San Jose Unified School District, developed a new accountability system for middle school that focuses on social-emotional learning and academic indicators. Janell Chery, Director of Research and Analysis at ImpactTulsa, analyzed successes and challenges from interventions to increase awareness of FAFSA and raise completion rates within Tulsa County high schools in Oklahoma. Richard Brown, Chief Research Scientist at National Math + Science Initiative, assessed implementation fidelity in a randomized control trial of an intervention to increase participation in Advanced Placement (AP) programs.
In small groups, these SDP Fellows will share the lessons learned at their organizations and lead attendees in reflection about their own agencies.
