"There is created the Utah Leading through Effective, Actionable, and Dynamic (ULEAD) Education, a collaborative effort in research and innovation between the director, participating institutions, and education leaders to: gather and explain current education research in an electronic research clearinghouse for use by practitioners; initiate and disseminate research reports on innovative and successful practices by Utah Local Education Agencies (LEAs), and guided by the steering committee, practitioners, and policymakers; promote statewide innovation and collaboration…and…propose policy changes to remove barriers to implementation of successful practices."
To help enhance the conditions for successful collaboration, a few simplified definitions should be helpful:
The ULEAD Practice Reports will become more detailed over time. For this Clearinghouse to have practical value and to enhance local collaborative efforts, a concerted effort will be made to provide summary documents that are clear, defensible, and supportive of evidence-based practices.
Initially, ULEAD Innovative and Effective Practice Reports will be published in varying formats to learn the most productive and efficient ways to communicate evidence-based research to our Utah stakeholders.
