In order to support LEAs in becoming start-of-school ready, OSSE is bringing together LEA leaders and key points of contact for its first LEA Start of School Summit on Friday, Aug. 4, 2017 at the Gallaudet University Kellogg Conference Hotel. During this summit, LEA teams, together with OSSE staff, will share resources and discuss common start-of-school and year-round challenges with data quality, data systems, enrollment, and serving special populations of students. In addition to LEA team problem-solving sessions, OSSE will provide deep dive training for specific LEA roles.
