RMC Research staff are working with the American Institutes of Research in Texas on multiple Texas Comprehensive Center projects. RMC has contributed literature summaries on schools that beat the odds and outperform test score predictions; Achievement Zones; and teacher and leader pipelines and is working with the taskforce on extended learning opportunities, helping them to refine their report for the Texas legislature. In addition, RMC is working with districts that received education preparation grants to improve their reporting mechanisms and evaluation approaches. We will start on data collection for effective districts, accountability manuals for educator preparation programs, and GIS mapping activities in the near future!
