ASCD's policy newsletter, Policy Priorities, reflects the purpose of this quarterly policy publication, which is to provide background and context for critical, timely education policy issues.
Administrators, teachers, families, policymakers, journalists, and others read Policy Priorities to better inform the decisions they make and the work they do.
Policy Priorities is published four times each year. Copies are mailed to all ASCD Premium members, and all other members have online access.

Making Accountability Meaningful
It is time for a new generation of accountability that fully reflects a more comprehensive definition of student success, accurately measures student learning, and more systematically tracks our efforts to support children. This issue of Policy Priorities examines the benefits and challenges of more meaningful accountability systems and profiles pioneering states and districts that are doing this work.
