Kinvolved’s Data Driven Leadership Summit is quickly approaching! The event will occur on Friday, October 20th, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Kinvolved’s Headquarters in downtown Manhattan. In this final week leading up to the summit, we’re focusing on how to ensure that attendees leave the summit with new ideas to consider and practical ways to use data to improve educational outcomes for NYC students.
The summit will feature an opening session on data driven leadership, a policy and practice breakout session, and a KiNVO bootcamp breakout session. Read on for information on the major takeaways you can expect from each session!
Data Driven Leadership Overview: Using Data to Catalyze Growth of our NYC Youth
Participants in this session will garner research, policy, practices, and resources incorporating early warning indicator (attendance, behavior, and course performance) data. Participants may take learnings back to their respective organizations, implement, and experience a positive influence on student performance.
After an opening message from Kinvolved CEO, Miriam Altman, this session will feature a keynote presentation from Dr. Douglas Ready of Columbia Teachers College, and case study presentations with a Q&A on solutions to improve student attendance and behavior. The panel will feature school leaders from Move This World and Kinvolved partner schools.
Policy Breakout: Using Early Warning Indicator Data to Inform Leadership Decisions
Participants will come away with a broad understanding of research, policies in effect and in planning, and specific practices on the ground that are working to empower leadership with early warning indicator (EWI) data to inform decisions that positively impact NYC students.
This session will feature presentations by Ms. Karoline Alexander, Community School Director, at CS 154 Harriet Tubman Learning Center; Mr. Chris Caruso, Executive Director of Community Schools for the NYC DOE; Ms. Kecia Hayes, Director of Teachers College REACH (Raising Educational Achievement Coalition of Harlem); and Dr. Douglas Ready, Associate Professor of Education and Public Policy at Teachers College.
KiNVO Bootcamp: KiNVO Data Best Practices
Participants will walk away with a strong understanding of: (1) their schools’ NYC DOE attendance data and KiNVO data, and (2) KiNVO functionality. Participants will complete a personalized Action Plan, which will guide their school’s use of KiNVO during the 2017-2018 school year. Lastly, we will create Affinity Groups based upon grade level and District.
Kinvolved Summits align key community stakeholders around common goals and strategies to fight chronic absence. We are very excited to facilitate productive discussions around using early warning indicator data to catalyze growth for NYC youth at this summit.
This summit will bring together school-based teams, district leadership, community partners, and policy leaders from across the NYC community to exchange best practices and innovations that use data to improve attendance and performance outcomes for students and families. Move This World, FuelEducation, and JumpRope will co-sponsor the event.
