WHY DATA MATTERS: SAU Leaders Invited to Train and Talk!

Are you a school or district leader who wonders why the Department of Education collects certain data sets, and what they are used for?  Have you ever wanted to have a frank discussion with the DOE’s Data Team about the data collections and how they could be improved?  Charlotte Ellis, the Maine Department of Education’s Data Manager will be hosting open discussion sessions throughout the state during the first two weeks of August.  These sessions will be held from 1-3pm in the same locations as the MDOE Data Team Summer Trainings.

The sessions will be geared toward each location’s participants, and the topics they have indicated interest in during the registration process.  Please use the following link to register and select the topics for the session you wish to attend.  Tip – if you have any interest in a topic, please move the indicator bar.  Leaving the bar in the middle without moving it registers a null response.
