Data quality recertification training starts Nov. 7

Training for school staff members who need recertification in the Maine Data Quality Certification Program will be available online from Nov. 7 to 28. The online training is available for certification in all three strands: Data Coordinator, Data Entry and Program Staff.

State and federal data reporting requirements change continuously. All Data Quality-certified staff must complete two hours of additional training annually in order to maintain a current Data Quality Program Certification status.

The Data Quality Program Certification is aimed at creating a school culture in which data help school staff make informed decisions about instruction and school programs.

If you obtained certification in any strand of the Maine Data Quality Certification Program, you can visit http://slds.me/moodle/ to begin the recertification process.
