The State Education Resource Center (SERC) provides resources, professional development, and a centralized library to educators, families and community members to educators, families, and community members in collaboration with the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) and other public and private partners.
SERC comprises several centers, and this booklet includes the initiatives and components of each center that produces Results-Based Accountability (RBA) report cards. In cooperation with CSDE, SERC utilizes the data in the RBA format to improve overall program performance and answer the essential questions of whom we serve, how well we serve them, and, ultimately, who is better off as a result.
SERC also produces data walls to display some of the RBA data and other information about individual initiatives. The back pages of this booklet show a photographic display of some of these data walls. All RBA report cards and data walls in this booklet represent data from the 2012-2013 school year.
