What We Do

  • The Research and Evaluation Department coordinates and manages state and federal accountability programs in GCS. We interpret legislation, policies and guidelines governing accountability programs; ensure that accurate and current information about accountability programs is communicated to school and district personnel; and manage large data collections ensuring data integrity and verify data for accuracy and completeness.

    Our department also interprets, analyzes and reports data from various sources; responds to requests for data and reports; and provides consultation and technical assistance to school personnel, district administration, and others. In addition, we are responsible for program evaluations in the district. We design surveys and other data collection instruments to determine the effectiveness of various educational programs in GCS. 

    We also collaborate with internal and external researchers to review research projects for approval and monitoring study activities within GCS.
