    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.

    This year's workshop will focus on EWIS (Early Warning Indicator System)  With EWIS, we have an early warning. We can tell which students are at risk of not being ready for college, starting when students are in 10th grade – while there is time to intervene and support students for success. With the updated College and Career Data Usage Certificate, build skill using DESE’s EWIS and other data tools to improve outcomes for your students.

    Through a workshop, webinars and virtual learning opportunities over the year, we will support you as you implement changes and monitor students’ ongoing risk. The series starts with an optional introductory webinar in October. An in-person half-day workshop is the anchor of the series where you will learn how to use the EWIS reports to examine students’ risk details and begin to identify underlying causes of risk. Optional webinars and virtual learning opportunities continue over the year, where participants share strategies and tools, celebrate successes, and troubleshoot challenges. The series ends with an optional Data Showcase event in the spring. Collect your findings and reflections into a data project to earn 15 PDPs and the College and Career Data Usage credential.

    The half-day workshop will be held at Universal Technical Institute in Norwood on October 25, 2018. 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 Data Showcase will be held at The Resort & Conference Center in Hyannis on April 30, 2018.
