Are you looking for ways to improve your professional practice and to improve outcomes for your students? Do you want to learn how to identify at risk students and to develop effective intervention plans? If your answer is "YES", we hope you will attend this workshop and ultimately earn the College and Career Data Usage Certificate for school counselors and other educators via a new and unique partnership between MASCA, MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and Reach Higher MA.
To earn this credential, participants will need to attend a half day workshop (one in the fall and the optional Data Showcase in the spring), participate in several webinars, and complete a data project aimed at improving outcomes for students at their schools. Participants will learn how to use EWIS, EDWIN, and DART Data. Once the requirements have been met and the project completed, participants will earn 15 PDPs and the College and Career Data Usage credential.
The initial half day meeting for educators in Eastern MA will be held at Universal Technical Institute in Norwood on October 6, 2017. Light breakfast refreshments will be served. This is a BYOD - Bring Your Own Device - workshop. Please bring a laptop (preferred) or tablet that can access the internet. The spring half day meeting will be held at Resort & Conference Center in Hyannis on April 30, 2018.
