Research and School Improvement

The Office of Research, Planning, Evaluation and School Improvement manages the student information and data systems, coordinates the district, state and college readiness testing, manages local and state accountability measures, conducts research and evaluation studies and processes requests to do research within the district.

Our mission is to work collaboratively to support all stakeholders by collecting, maintaining, and reporting accurate data, facilitating testing, and using current technology in order to provide useful and timely information and support toward positive student outcomes and achievement. 

Our vision is to provide a dynamic data and online testing system and work collaboratively with all departments to connect teachers, students, parents, and other stakeholders with timely data, information, training and resources.

  • Demographic and Performance Data:  Data on California’s schools and districts can be found at:  Data QuestEd-Data, or CA Dashboard.  In addition, data aligned to the District Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) can be found at Local Control Accountability Plan.
  • Request for Data:  If you are a current district employee who wishes to request data not currently available on LROIX, please click on the LROIX application “Research Data Request” and follow the corresponding steps.  If you are outside the district, a public records request can be placed through our Public Request Center.
  • Request to Conduct a Research Study: The Long Beach Unified School District has been a pioneer in the approval of large numbers of Applications to Conduct Research in the past because we believe research will ultimately improve our practices.
