Decision Points And Considerations For Identifying Rural Districts That Have Closed Student Achievement Gap


"Rural districts have long faced challenges in closing achievement gaps between subgroups of students. This brief describes key decision points and considerations for decisionmakers interested in identifying rural districts that have closed academic achievement gaps. Examining practices in these districts may suggest activities associated with making achievement gains and narrowing achievement gaps that can be systematically investigated. Examples from recent work with rural stakeholder groups in Colorado and Nebraska are used to highlight key issues in the identification process."
