The Center for Education and Civil Rights at Penn State University formed a partnership with State College Area School District with the intention of assisting the district with collecting and analyzing data, particularly to investigate equity opportunity gaps. This partnership is mutually beneficial, as we and other scholars within Penn State’s College of Education are committed to developing sustainable collaborations, particularly these sorts of research-practitioner partnerships. Knowing that accurate data collection and analysis processes are integral for districts like SCASD to understand and effectively address inequities in their schools, this report offers district personnel a research basis for its equity work while also supporting transparency about educational inequality in the community.
