For the first time in Florida history, we’ve been granted access to district data so that we can better understand our current impact, and  set goals for where we’d like to go in the future. We’ll be looking at our aggregated school and teacher alumni data to get a better understanding of our effectiveness, and use that to help us learn what more we can do to boost our impact.
