  • The mission of the Accountability Department is to improve student achievement by providing reliable actionable information and cultivating a culture of data-based decision making.

     This is accomplished by developing the tools and maintaining the data needed by district personnel and the public to monitor the effectiveness of, and make informed decisions about, District 5 schools and programs. The grants office is also part of this department.

    Major functions of this department are:

        * coordination and administration of federal, state and district mandated testing programs;
        * evaluation of district instructional initiatives;
        * development and support of analysis tools for education decision making; and
        * researching and applying for federal, state, and philanthropic grant money.
