This session will explore how two schools connected through the Finland/Alberta (FINAL) engaged a theory of school change that help build a new approach ton school performance reporting through what we call “rich accountabilities” of school success.

A narrow focus on grades and graduation rates prevents schools from tracing the ways in which an engaged and equitable learning community, its culture and programming, affects students’ success.
ResponseAbility Lab tests the notion that schools can and should evaluate how they nurture students' abilities to learn, grow, create, and thrive in social, academic, and professional settings. These case studies of a Finnish school and one in Alberta, contribute to current understandings that engagement, participation and equity within learning environments directly affect student outcomes. Schools that pursue a broad range of goals experience improved academic results as well as better citizenship, health, resiliency, and life-preparedness outcomes. These initiatives used a multilateral accountabilities framework to track how schools engage with broader measures of success to enhance their adaptive capacity.
