The ID SRAS draws its members from the ranks of the Idaho State Department of Education, state technical assistance providers, and school district staff.
This collaboration is studying school improvement characteristics and supports through activities such as:
- Using inquiry processes to answer actionable questions about the coherence of the statewide system of support for low-performing schools
- Engaging in guided data inquiries to formatively evaluate and help shape the Idaho system of support
- Conducting an implementation study of the Idaho Building Capacity program
- Collecting and using data to make informed improvements to programs providing services to low-performing schools
A 2014 ID SRAS study examined how teacher perceptions of school effectiveness are linked to student outcomes in low-achieving schools. Principal Investigator Caitlin Scott describes the findings.
