To ensure transparency and demonstrate effectiveness, SERC releases comprehensive information on its operations and its support to school districts. SERC’s annual reports cover programming highlights from the previous fiscal year, while the legislatively mandated fiscal reports include the year’s financial statements and federal, state, and independent audits of SERC.
Data reports, compiled by SERC education consultants or outside research firms, examine data points and trends in a given fiscal year for particular SERC initiatives. For example, historical Connecticut data on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), which SERC coordinates statewide, reveal the relationship between rates of office discipline referrals and schools’ implementation of PBIS.
Additional information on the statewide PBIS initiative is at http://ctserc.org/pbis.
