Image for aesthetic effect only - Standard-webinar-thumbnail Professional learning is the key to increased student outcomes. As school districts design professional learning, it is critical to consider the specific challenge you are working to address, the professional learning interventions you will employ, and to carefully plan for how you will measure the impact of those interventions so as to know whether to continue, adjust, or try something different. Hear from school districts as they share their professional learning data stories.     Participants will: Understand the importance of data collection; Gain new ideas for professional learning interventions and ways to measure impact; and Learn the latest on Title II-A in the FY 2021 budget appropriations process.
