Proposal to Design the Data System and Monitoring Process for Assessing Compliance with the Leandro Requirements

$15,000

The report, Sound Basic Education for All: An Action Plan for North Carolina, introduces eight critical need areas that must be addressed by the State of North Carolina in order to meet its constitutional obligation to provide all students with a sound basic education. This grant from the Brady Education Foundation is funding WestEd to develop a Leandro Monitoring Plan that will analyze and report on research data annually to monitor the state’s actions and progress in meeting the Leandro requirements. Using data in this way will ensure accountability and attention to continuous improvement of education in the state, especially for students who have been historically underserved.
