2016 Student Data Symposium


The Washoe County School District’s (WCSD) Office of Accountability and members of the Student Advisory Board teamed up to host the second annual Student Data Symposium on March 18, 2016 at Truckee Meadows Community College.

Topics Covered:

  • Assessing and Studying Social Emotional Learning:  How well are we assessing social and emotional competencies? Are there connections between social-emotional competencies and students’ academic and behavioral outcomes?
  • A Closer Look at Poverty in Our Schools:  What are the obstacles to learning faced by students living in poverty in WCSD? How does poverty relate to student outcomes and how can we best support our students living in poverty?
  • Career and Technical Education:  A closer look at the Career and Technical Education Pathway in our High Schools. What is it? Who is participating? What is the advantage to participating in Career and Technical Education?
