The Office of Planning and Research helps DESE and the field make effective use of resources to improve student outcomes. We design programs that help educators use, build, and share evidence about practices; develop tools that provide school districts with information about their use of people, time, and money and enable comparisons between districts; draft plans to advance DESE's work to reach our goal of success after high school for all students; and conduct research to improve program implementation and outcomes.
