South Washington County Schools' department of Program Evaluation, Research and Assessment works to help the district reach its core value of continuous improvement.

The department primarily supports the district with implementing the continuous improvement process. We provide support and expertise to schools and staff through:

  • Reviewing and summarizing research around student learning and instruction;
  • Providing expertise in the area of measurement including survey and assessment development;
  • Evaluating district and school programs; and
  • Providing professional development in the area of appropriate assessment use and data interpretation (e.g., assessment literacy).
