Battelle for Kids is collecting nearly 40 participating Ohio SOAR* districts' student data. This individual student data is then linked to individual student teachers and principals in a data collection, reporting, research and communication program called T-CAP. Monroe has been a SOAR* Schools since 2007. This past spring Monroe Local Schools became a T-CAP district too.

According to Superintendent Libbie Lolli, Monroe Local schools was invited to participate in the program. She went on to say, "We have just now become a TCAP (Teachers connecting achievement and progress).  We will have information next year on the TCAP.  It will be in the form of individual results so we cannot share those, but we can share a combined report once we do it."

Bobby Moore, Ed.D., Principal, Jonathan Alder Local School District has this to say about T-CAP, "In a Professional Learning Community, authentic professional development begins with teachers examining and dialoging about student learning and data. T-CAP provides teachers and principals with another level of data that provides opportunities for dialogue, reflection, goal setting and continuous improvement."
