The new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires that states engage in meaningful consultation with a variety of stakeholders in making decisions about state plans for ESSA implementation. Many of these decisions will be based on the data on students, schools, professionals and communities.
This webinar will help you hone your skills in finding, understanding, and using data to make sure that the needs and interests of students with disabilities and their families are addressed in these important discussions.
