RAD Team

The Research, Accountability and Data Department in District 65 conducts applied research and analysis on District programs, goals, and priorities; oversees the review and approval of research conducted by external researchers; oversees state and federal data reporting and compliance; manages state and local assessment logistics and procedures; oversees and supports grants management, and works with school leadership teams and district departments to support the effective use of data and evidence to inform decision making.

Our departmental theory of action is: if we have high-quality data systems and we use research and evidence-based insights to drive our strategies, then we can conduct reliable analysis and research and increase our potential for improving outcomes so that our district can be more effective at serving our students and staff and improving long-term student success.
