No one would disagree that education is critical for our success as a community, state and nation. With such a foundational system for society it is not surprising that we have seen so much work on “How we measure up?”
There is no lack of measures, be it a child’s report card, school and district report card, standardized student assessments, surveys, performance and student growth teacher evaluations to the new Kindergarten Individual Development Survey. We use all these data to help us and our organizations improve. But what we do not measure is how much our educators give of themselves for others. For the past two years, the Regional Office of Education has made a commitment to reaching all learners. We are amazed at the expanding needs of our students but equally amazed at the services that our schools continue to provide.
What services does our office provide?
