Vision for UConn UPPI Leader Tracking System (DRAFT)
The Leader Tracking System (LTS) developed through the UConn UPPI project will provide data useful to the CSDE, partner districts, and Neag School for assessing and making decisions about the preparation, placement, and development of aspiring and practicing building-level school leaders.
- The State of Connecticut will have the infrastructure to collect and store essential data on preparation program graduates and in-service educators working in roles requiring the intermediate administrator (092) certification.
- Hartford, Meriden, and New Haven will have the capacity to analyze various data points on teachers, assistant principals, and principals to prepare and place these individuals in positions where they will be most effective and make the greatest impact on achievement.
- The Neag School will have the capacity to assess program outcomes and plan for continuous improvement in the areas of curriculum, instruction, internship, and graduate outcomes.
