Research & Evaluation

The vision of the research and evaluation department is to provide a model of excellence in continuous improvement. Our services include:

  • coordinating the district's balanced assessment system that is aligned with the Minnesota Academic Standards and district goals
  • supporting a continuous improvement model that enables teachers and administrators to use data to monitor the success of individual students to ultimately result in increasing positive outcomes for each and every student
  • conducting district wide Program Evaluations using relevant research and data to enable teachers and administrators to make sound curriculum and program decisions
