We are a nonprofit organization established to promote innovative models of schools and increase justice and opportunity for all learners.
School quality and student learning are too complex to be captured by any single test score. Reflecting the full measure of schools and student learning requires a new approach. Join us for the second annual MCIEA forum, where we will explore early lessons from the districts and schools participating in the Massachusetts Consortium for Innovative Education Assessment. Hear from teachers designing meaningful and relevant performance assessments and see how districts are using multiple measures of school quality to improve student learning, school culture, and community engagement.

MCIEA alone is not enough. We need a grassroots movement, in Massachusetts and across the nation, of educators, parents, and community members that come together to advocate for new accountability systems at the local, state, and national levels that engage students and promote self-reflective school improvement.
Debates about whether a school ought to be closed overlook fundamental questions. Are the metrics used to measure schools reasonable? What makes us think that these are the measures that best capture what matters most? And how can we justify turning away from the testimonies of students, teachers, and families who know, love, and fight for these schools?
