Research, Evaluation & Assessment

The Research, Evaluation and Assessment (REA) Department assists schools and the school district by collecting, interpreting and communicating findings.

REA assists staff to integrate data into the district improvement process and encourage data-based decision making. We provide state-of-the-art research, evaluation and assessment expertise and information for diverse stakeholders to maximize educational decision-making and student outcomes.

Our vision: Effective, equity-focused decision-making through strategic data use and collaboration.
