Research, Assessment, and Accountability

The Office of Research, Planning, and Evaluation at ABCUSD maintains data systems, facilitates district, state, and college readiness testing, generates school-wide accountability and student performance reports, and responds to data requests in accordance with California Department of Education guidelines. We work collaboratively with students, parents, teachers, and other district stakeholders to provide accurate, timely information that can be used to support future student success. Our office's goals are to apply current technology while collecting, presenting, and drawing meaningful conclusions from data, conclusions which can then connect families and educators to the appropriate training and resources for improved academic achievement.
