ReContext is committed to transforming school data into the most powerful tool in every administrators belt. We do this through:
- providing superior insights and analysis,
- building custom analytical tools and metrics,
- giving school leaders the skills and tools to becoming transformative data-informed change agents.
ReContext is a team of school improvement experts who understand the system from the inside out. We’ve been teachers, principals, leadership mentors, superintendents, and data system specialists. We’ve worked with charter and non-charter public schools in urban and rural setting, in wealthy districts and with 100% poverty student populations.
Our expertise is in supporting transformational approaches to education by connecting the work of innovators and school leaders to the institutional goals of the greater education system through the medium of carefully planned and expertly executed data analysis, presentation, and implementation.
Our approach to analyzing standardized testing data provides both authentic insight into school performance against a tailored benchmark AND leads on finding strategies that can work for your school’s unique student body in your unique neighborhood context.
Metrics that Matter
Too often transformational opportunities are missed because we’re focused on the wrong metrics. The problem is compounded in the world of education, where state and federal mandates are piled on top of community expectations and staffing realities. We know how to build the right metrics, using existing and accessible data, in partnership with any stakeholder group, and to communicate the value of unique approaches within an existing institutional framework.
Optimize the Value of Your Data
Even schools with great data teams are often sitting on a treasure trove of underused data. Because we know both data analysis AND the education system, we bridge the gap between raw data and actionable information. We work with school leaders to build data strategy plans aimed at making the data optimally useful for all stakeholders: students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community.
