Find What Works, Act on Evidence, Improve Results
What We Do
Through both our ongoing network collaboration and our annual institutes, Proving Ground works with school districts to help them identify and test evidence-based solutions to specific challenges, such as chronic absenteeism, that are obstacles to student achievement.
Collaborate with Proving Ground
Join Our Network
The Proving Ground Network connects partner districts focused on solving common problems and supports them with data analysis, strategic advice, hands-on assistance, and peer networking opportunities.
Attend Our Institute
The week-long Proving Ground Institute trains district teams to use our framework for continuous improvement to use evidence to address district-specific challenges related to student attendance and chronic absenteeism.
Proving Ground’s continuous improvement framework helps our partners better understand their challenges and rapidly identify and implement solutions that work for students, families, and schools.
National Center on Rural Education Research Networks
NCRERN will apply the Proving Ground continuous improvement model to build the capacity of rural school districts and support state agencies to use their data to improve the education of their students.
