Making Collaborative Decisions Based on Research

Although many educators focus on data use to inform programs and practices in the current policy context, less attention is paid to more in-depth research on particular topics or deriving from a specific study. Even more uncommon are the use of these types of evidence and cross-district dialogue about them. That is not the case in the Rochester, New York, metropolitan area. For several years, researchers from the University of Rochester have been working with program administrators and educators from eight local school districts to better understand the operation and implementation of a regional choice program that has been in place for more than 40 years. Through this research partnership, researchers collected and analyzed data from this program to inform the broader research and local program implementation. In addition, they have used research on other programs to inform policies and practices in Rochester.
