The Maine Department of Education (DOE) Data Team will be holding their annual summer trainings during the last two weeks of July. The focus this year will be on tips and resources to assist School Administrative Units (SAUs) with data reporting and with viewing/certifying reports.
- Training sessions this year will be held remotely utilizing the Microsoft Teams application.
- All training sessions will begin with a presentation and conclude with a topical Q&A. Please feel free to register for as many sessions as you would like.
- Most sessions are duplicated to ensure as much availability as possible.
