On November 16, 2017, Margie Johnson and Brad Redmond shared MNPS' Data-Informed Decision Making Ecosystem and how it was used to improve how MNPS uses attendance data for making informed decisions. To teach participants about the heart of the ecosystem, which is a culture of collaborative inquiry, participants engaged in the collaborative inquiry process by looking at attendance data and making recommendations for improving it. Using this process, data conversations were fostered and several departments approached us about having continued conversations for supporting student success.
