The primary data collection will include a teacher survey assessing school improvement practices (data-based decision-making, practices associated with improved student achievement, shared leadership, and purposeful community) and student achievement data. Data collection will occur over a two-year period. Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) will be used to determine the effects of SiS on school-level student achievement and school-level reform practices.
