Of course they don't trust the data - and they shouldn't. A few years ago I was working for one of the schools mentioned in this post & I was reporting suspension to grant funders. About mid-year I discovered that the data I was reporting (compiled directly from Administrators and the In School Suspension teacher) was wildly different than the data the Principal was reporting to RCSD. As a result, from that point forward people were instructed not to share real data with me. The next year I was transferred out of that school & the Principal was promoted. SO MUCH is buried at the school level, that the data that makes it way to Central Office is extremely inaccurate. Oh and in my professional career I have never met anyone more full of hot air than Cynthia Elliott.
