Community Indicators for Your Community

Real, lasting community change is built around knowing where you are, where you want to be, and whether your efforts are making a difference. Indicators are a necessary ingredient for sustainable change. And the process of selecting community indicators -- who chooses, how they choose, what they choose -- is as important as the data you select.

The Jacksonville Community Council (JCCI) understands indicators and community change, with more than 25 years of producing the annual Quality of Life Progress Report for Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida region, and two decades of helping other communities develop their own sustainable indicators projects. JCCI consultants give you the information you need to measure progress, identify priorities for action, and assess results.

I'd like to talk with you personally about how we can help. E-mail me at
ben@jcci.org, call (904) 396-3052, or visit CommunityWorks for more information. From San Antonio to Siberia, we're ready and willing to assist.

Free Access to Education Week Data

Important news from Education Week. I like having free access to data, even if it's only for 10 days:

Now that summer is over, edweek.org is having an Open House to kick off the new school year! You are invited to come in and take a look around. You'll find everything you need to be up to speed on K-12 news, policy changes, commentary, analysis and more.

Our doors are wide open from September 5 through September 15. That means you'll have full access to everything our premium subscribers see daily!

Here are some of the most popular articles read by your colleagues this summer. Now is your chance to read them, too:
Reading Curricula Don't Make Cut For Federal Review - By Kathleen Kennedy Manzo
Learning and Earning - By Christopher B. Swanson
Teachers Say That NCLB Has Changed Classroom Practice - By Debra Viadero
Teaching Secrets: Students Behave When Teachers Engage - By Anthony Cody
Plus, you can do research using our
archives, review our special reports, and get all of the current news.

There is so much to see – all for free – and only 10 days to see it. So hurry!

If you run out of time, you can still enjoy free access to edweek.org and Education Week by starting a free trial subscription. Click here to start your free trial of print and online access:
