Data Management Fall Workshop/Webinar Series: “Don’t be Stranded Without the Right Tools to Do the Job”

Join ESS Data Management for our 2012 fall workshop/webinar series:

  • Federal October 1 Child Count – Making it Fit: Does the federal October 1 Child Count feel like a jigsaw puzzle as you try to make all the pieces fit? There are many pieces: verification, reconciliation, and non-reconciliation. ESS Data Management can help you make it fit.
  • Special Education Participation in SAIS – Making it Work: Everyone knows that submitting data to SAIS (the Student Accountability Information System) can be challenging and overwhelming. Are you a new data manager or an experienced data professional who needs a refresher on how to submit special education participation data? ESS Data Management and School Finance explain the special education data submission process and how to make it work for your PEA.
  • Special Education Data Management Toolbox – Making it Better: Just as a handyman tackles each home improvement project, you’ll find there are lots of ways to improve the quality of your data submissions. To assist you in the submission of accurate and valid data, many tools are at your disposal. Let’s dig into our toolbox and make it better.

Each session will be offered separately in webinars scheduled throughout September and October. All three sessions will also be covered in regional, face-to-face workshops in Phoenix, Flagstaff, and Tucson. The complete workshop and webinar schedule is attached to this email, including instructions on how to register for each session. Please note: registration is required. All sessions are free of charge and recommended for those who are new to federal special education data reporting.
