Visualizing Outcome Gaps Across Student Groups

Our newest DC educational dashboard utilizes recently released additional student group outcomes data on report card metrics. OSSE published results for more granular student groups like "Not At-Risk Students without Disabilities" and "Black/African-American Males" in a raw file. We applied our interactive data warehousing and  dashboarding expertise to let the public robustly explore the new information. 

Interact with the dashboard here.

Learn more about the dashboard in our blog post about the Equity Tool.

Report: Lessons from DC's Bold Improvement Schools


In June 2018, we released our latest report on the amazing things happening at 10 DC schools closing the achievement gap. Our report highlights the commonalities among the schools and our website features additional unique things that make them special. Click below to find out more.

Bold Improvement Schools are Closing the Gap

Each of the Bold Improvement schools demonstrates annual student academic growth that meets or exceeds the growth at DC's higher-income schools. Altogether, the Bold Improvement schools are on pace to close the achievement gap in a little over 3 years.

Common Bold Improvement Practices

All 10 schools have a relentless commitment to high expectations for staff and students, are deeply invested in teacher quality, ensure support for the whole child, engage their students' families in unique ways, and are driven to find the additional resources their school needs to be successful.

Unique Ideas from Bold Leaders

We also learned several unique practices at Bold Schools when we toured the schools and interviewed staff. Each of their ideas was driven by data and part of a cycle of continuous improvement.
