What’s data got to do with it?

Josh Souliere, VT AOE and Bruce Smith, VT AOE


This strand is for school teams, individuals, and/or data junkies.  Strand participants will conduct an inventory of current data sets in their school/SU, learn about various levels of data across all tiers, develop data analysis protocols, learn about the role of the data analyst and practice using data to drive decision-making to improve behavioral and academic outcomes for all learners.  Participants will leave with practical tools and protocols to implement data days in their schools.  This would be an ideal opportunity for individuals to bring back valuable data lessons to their school teams during planning time.  We’re 95% confident you’ll enjoy this strand!



Check back after May 1st
