Welcome to the Office of Research and Evaluation at the School District of Philadelphia!

Research and Evaluation - Home

The Office of Research and Evaluation seeks to better the lives of Philadelphia’s students through the implementation of comprehensive, high-quality program evaluation and research within the school and neighborhood environment.

Our office also strives to reach schools and their communities through the use of understandable, clear, and actionable data to drive day-to-day decision-making. It is our mission to provide meaningful data that can be utilized by school leaders and staff, to drive positive change within the District and in Philadelphia as a whole.

Guided by the District’s Action Plan 3.0, our office provides support to administrators, school staff, and community stakeholders across Philadelphia and beyond. Our largest projects are guided by our District’s Anchor Goals, with Early Literacy, School Transformation, Climate, and College and Career Readiness being out focus. Additionally, we serve the District and community through our Research Review Committee which works with external researchers to uphold the quality of research conducted within our schools. If you have questions about our office or our work, please feel free to contact us.

The Office of Research and Evaluation is part of the Office of Evaluation, Research, and Accountability which also houses the District Performance Office.
