CIITS Cadre

CIITS Cadre

          “Finally, CIITS is bringing together the formerly disparate functions of instruction, assessment, data analysis and reporting into a single platform, reducing complexity and increasing effectiveness in the classroom.  More improvements are coming with the 18.0 release in late October or early November. This will help administrators make informed decisions based on timely access to data analytics and trends that could impact their curriculum and learning environment.”  (Stephen Pruitt, Kentucky Education Commissioner)

The Role of KEDC in Implementation of CIITS

KEDC provides an important role in helping educators implement CIITS in their school districts.  We provide assistance in a variety of ways including: 

       ·         Sponsoring a free CIITS Cadre for all members. 

       ·         Providing CIITS updates for other cadres and networks. 

       ·         Conducting and hosting professional development opportunities on CIITS.

       ·         Offering a CIITS Consultant for one-to-one mentoring on usage of CIITS.
