Registration info

The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence, in partnership with the Association for Recovery Schools (ARS) presents The Power of Data in Supporting Recovery High Schools,

This webinar will focus on the critical role of data in Recovery High Schools (RHSs). Attendees will learn about the historical significance of data, how it currently informs the mission of RHSs, and its practical applications in student support. Specifically, the session will demonstrate how data has been utilized at institutions like Hope Academy and Harmony Academy to foster student success.

Participants will also gain insights on identifying and using existing data to make informed decisions for board governance, grant applications, and enhancing student support systems.
An interactive breakout session will allow for personalized discussions on data challenges and strategies for data utilization in their respective schools.

By the end of this webinar, attendees will have a roadmap for immediate action, understand the available data, and identify further resources and training needed to empower their RHSs through data-driven approaches. The session promises not only to be educational but also to provide practical, immediate steps for integrating data into the daily functioning and strategic planning of RHSs.

Join us for this pivotal event to harness the transformative potential of data in supporting the journey of recovery high school students.

Learning goals and objectives:

  • Understanding the Significance of Data in Recovery High Schools (RHSs):
    Objective: Participants will gain an understanding of the historical and current importance of data in RHSs. They will be able to identify at least three key ways in which data supports the mission and operations of these schools.
  • Practical Application of Data in Student Support:
    Objective: Through real-life examples from Hope Academy and Harmony, participants will learn how data has been effectively used to support students. By the end of the workshop, they should be able to list at least two strategies for utilizing data in student support and engagement.
  • Identifying and Utilizing Available Data:
    Objective: Attendees will recognize that they are already collecting useful data. They will learn how to identify this data and utilize it to answer important questions related to board decisions, grants, and student support.
  • Action Planning and Future Training Needs:
    Objective: Participants will engage in breakout sessions to discuss their own data-related challenges and needs. By the end of the workshop, they should be able to outline one actionable step they can take immediately and identify at least one area where they need further training or resources.
