Superintendents, AASA members and educators chimed in during the AASA and Hobsons "Data for School Leaders" Tweetchat, held on September 9, to emphasize the value of utilizing data in affecting district-wide change and improving instruction in the classroom. Hobsons, a partner of AASA, provided expertise during the chat through Naviance, the organization's college and career-readiness platform, and answered questions related to implementing effective data systems and monitoring and tracking student progress through data.

View the archived conversation here. Many thanks to our superintendents and participants for making their views and input on this topic heard on social media through the #dataforchange hashtag.

As an additional resource on how districts and superintendents use data to impact change, check out the January 2013 School Administrator issue, "Data's Driving Force." Also, click here for examples of how Hobsons and Naviance use data to help improve student achievement.
