The Impact of ESSA: Identifying Evidence-Based Resources

Date of broadcast: Thu, 05/03/18

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires all Title I schools to use “evidence-based” educational activities. It is crucial that administrators understand not only how the law defines “evidence-based,” but also how to apply that definition to their decision making process in selecting the resources that will meet their district’s needs.

Attend this web seminar to participate in a discussion about the practical implications of ESSA for administrators, and how to analyze and apply education research to help you make more effective strategic decisions for your district.

Topics will include:

    • How ESSA defines “evidence-based”
    • Five important questions to ask when evaluating evidence-based interventions under ESSA
    • How to cut through research jargon and answer the question, “Does this intervention truly help students?”

Scheduled speakers:

John Lovato, Ed.D.
Assistant Superintendent, Educational Services
Rosemead School District (Calif.)

Luci Willits
Associate Vice President, Policy
Curriculum Associates

Kristopher John
Vice President, Online Assessment

Who will benefit: Administrators interested in ESSA, interventions or selecting programs and resources. Anyone may attend.
