Telling Your EL Data Story

This workshop will guide participants in using ACCESS data to fully understand how ELs are doing in individual buildings and across the district. Participants will understand how to evaluate growth. We will also discuss the EL Indicator; the portion of the Missouri’s ESSA plan that includes ELs. Importantly, participants will see data that clearly shows the powerful effect language has on academic achievement for all students. The workshop is intended for EL Coordinators, EL teachers, and any administrator concerned with and wants to improve the academic performance of ELs. Dates, times and registration are as follows:

May 9 – 9:00-12:00 – University of Missouri – Townsend Hall (Note: In addition to the in-person workshop, this event will be broadcasted live via Nureva. For more information, contact Dr. Cynthia Chasteen at chasteenc@missouri.edu.)
