The focus of the professional development is in the methods, procedures, and best practices in the use and analysis of data to inform and improve instructional practices in Nebraska Schools.
The Data Literacies are the guiding framework for the statewide professional development initiative.
The Data Cadre is a collaborative professional development effort between The Nebraska Department of Education and the Educational Service Units Coordinating Council. Goal 2 of the SLDS grant provides a statewide system of professional development training for data analysis that reaches every district. NDE and the ESUs are working together toward this goal.
