ATLANTA – Oct. 4, 2016 – California administrators continue to implement theirLocal Control and Accountability Plan(LCAP) as required by the California Department of Education. As part of the effort to meet the state’s new accountability requirements, six California school districts representing 116,000 students, have selected IO Insights from IO Education to better gauge, track and report on LCAP progress.

Covina-Valley, Pomona, Apple Valley, Orange, Azusa and Pasadena Unified School Districts have chosen IO Education as the accountability platform to set goals, define measures, monitor progress and report on student achievement to improve educational outcomes.

“IO Education is committed to supporting California school districts in their efforts to develop plans, set annual goals and report on actions being taken to meet the goals. The IO Assessment and IO Insights products will make it easier for California administrators and teachers to succeed with LCAP,” said Michael Williamson, CEO of IO Education.

With each district, IO Education will work with educators and leaders to customize the IO Insights platform to be the foundation for reporting and easy-to-use visualizations. With a hands-on implementation process, district accountability teams – supported by IO Education – will define and implement the data collection and reporting needed to gauge student achievement and track outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness. With reporting specifically designed for teachers, school leadership and district leadership, each educator will be involved in meeting the LCAP requirements.

“The introduction of IO Insights into our schools is immensely helpful as we work to meet LCAP requirements now,” said Silvia San Martin, director of research assessment and accountability at Pomona USD. “With IO Education, we can create custom dashboards to track student progress more closely and identify any students who may begin to show signs of struggling.”

The California Department of Education requires each school district to collaborate with parents, educators, employees and the community to create a plan addressing eight key educational areas: student achievement, student engagement, other student outcomes, parental involvement, school climate, course access, implementation of common-core state standards, and basic services. Districts will choose their goals and how they will measure growth for each of these areas. IO Education will also support all accountability and reporting requirements as LCAP is reconciled with the final Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) regulations.

With IO Education, schools and districts can break down data silos and aggregate state, district, school and classroom data, including assessment, core demographic information, and other key measures such as perception and social-emotional data, to develop a rich understanding of the student and the path to growth and achievement.
