Wednesday, July 8, 2020

Time: 2:00 p.m. Central Time

Location: Virtual


Building on a previous training on evidence-based practices for the Michigan Data Hub, REL Midwest is offering a training series to provide regional staff with a deeper understanding of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) tiers of evidence. This session covers how to align evidence with context. By developing a deeper understanding of the ESSA criteria, stakeholders at the Michigan Data Hub will be better positioned to assist district and school leaders and integrate these evidentiary requirements into their work.
