Student Engagement in Three Rural Northwest Districts

July 23, 2020—January 12, 2021


REL Northwest held a series of coaching events for members of the Northwest Rural Innovation and Student Engagement Network—a professional network for teachers and leaders from some of the most rural and remote areas of the region. The goal of these events was to help these stakeholders understand how student engagement may vary by student characteristics and how these characteristics relate to student achievement. This increased understanding may help leaders make more informed decisions about school activities related to engagement, potentially influencing both student engagement and student achievement.

Resources from the three events are below. The slides present the results of the analysis of multiple measures of student engagement, including participation in extracurricular activities, attendance, and students' engagement as self-reported in surveys. These measures are analyzed in relation to student achievement and differentiated by student group. Each slide deck presents a brief overview of the findings for all districts and a more detailed description of the findings for each of the three districts.

The memos summarize the data and analytic methods used to produce the results for each district in the Student Engagement in Three Rural Northwest Districts project. Each memo includes a description of the coaching activities associated with this project, a brief overview of the findings for all districts, and a more detailed description of the findings for each of the three districts.
