Statewide System of Support (SSoS)

CSDP Progress Monitoring

In partnership with an approved vendor, American Institutes for Research (AIR), CSDP Progress Monitoring Site Visits are one or two-day visits of schools that receive a variety of supports from the Center for School and District Partnership (CSDP). CSDP Progress Monitoring Site Visits yield critical information and feedback on the progress districts and schools are making in implementing systems to support deeper learning as identified in the Coherence Guidebook through classroom observations (using the CLASS tool by Teachstone and a Universal Design for Learning tool by Novak Education), instructional staff surveys, focus groups, and interviews. CSDP regularly uses data collected from site visits to assess its impact on DESE's Educational Vision to create equitable opportunities and experiences for all students, particularly for those who have been historically underserved.
