SDP Partnership Applications Now Available

November 5, 2014

The Strategic Data Project (SDP) is now accepting partnership applications for Cohort 7 of the SDP Fellowship program.

What is the Strategic Data Project?
The Strategic Data Project (SDP), housed at the Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University, partners with a range of education organizations to transform the use of data in education to improve student achievement. The SDP Fellowship is a two-year program that develops and supports talented data strategists in education agencies to have an immediate impact on policy and management decisions that can improve student outcomes. Our work is based on the beliefs that policy and management decisions made by education leaders directly influence the ability and capacity of schools and teachers to improve student achievement and attainment. In addition, valid and reliable data analysis improves the quality of decision-making.

Current partners include close to 100 school districts, charter management organizations, state education agencies, and nonprofit organizations; there are 191 fellows across these partners.
