We were fortunate when we closed out our year that we partnered with Cognia for assessment. The assessments are a good match for the scope and sequence of our curriculum. We got the data back quickly and it gave us a helpful baseline."Gary TipsordSuperintendent, LeRoy CUSD #2LeRoy, IL
Until the data exposed the academic differences, bias and equity were not part of the conversation. Before we analyzed actual data, the achievement gap was suspected and not widely accepted as actual. After reflection and review, it became apparent that bias, sensitivity, and equity needed to become part of the discussion. School improvement teams and district improvement teams now write, vocalize, and follow through on actions that are intentionally aligned to closing the achievement gap.”Nick Baughman, Ed.D.Associate Superintendent, Yorkville School District 115Yorkville, IL
It’s not for compliance, but for monitoring and identifying the supports schools need and how that transitions to the work we do at the district level.”Phil ValdezDeputy Superintendent, Farmington Municipal SchoolsFarmington, NM
Among the many benefits of partnership, our statewide collaboration with AdvancED [Cognia] has yielded an unwavering focus on continuous improvement, student performance, and stakeholder satisfaction."Kirsten BaeslerState Superintendent, North Dakota Department of Public InstructionBismarck, ND
Cognia is more than a partner in our journey for continuous improvement, because they anticipate our needs as a district and as educators while also being open to innovation and creating solutions for our staff and students. We would not have had the success and growth we’ve had this year without the support from Cognia and the ND Department of Public Instruction."Kari SchneiderCurriculum Director, Killdeer Public School District #16Killdeer, ND
