KEDC is offering a new PD Opportunity for Superintendents and their district teams on September 24-25 in Lexington. “Continuous Improvement – Beyond CSIP Development” will assist district teams in focusing on using the six (6) Key Core Work Processes to streamline and guide data analysis that will flow into improvement planning. Participants will have the opportunity to use their school/district data to engage in guided practice using data teaming for needs assessment, diagnostics, and various quality tools to transform their data collection efforts.  This interactive session will provide 5-7 proven strategies that have moved schools and increased student achievement across the state. 

We recommend a team consisting of a principal, a teacher or other school level staff and a district office representative to attend this free professional learning opportunity.  Of course, this is only recommended; feel free to send any combination of a team that best fits the needs of your school or district. Please see attached flyer for more details.
