TASA partners with lead4ward to provide accountability support to districts and ESCs through accountabilityconnect. This subscription-based district support service is designed to help school leaders and others understand state and federal assessment and accountability systems and stay current on changes and developments in the areas of instruction, assessment, and accountability. The service’s focus on classroom instruction and student learning helps campus and district leaders make sense of the complexities surrounding assessment and accountability systems so that they can more effectively lead and support sound instructional practices. Ultimately this allows districts to connect accountability to instruction, benefiting teachers, students, staff, and the entire school community.
