2018 Start of School Summit Presentation Materials

View presentions for each breakout session.

Following up on the successful 2017 Start of School initiative, OSSE hosted the 2018 Start of School Summit on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 to support LEAs in becoming start-of-school ready. This event brought together key points of contact from LEAs across the city.

During the summit, OSSE staff shared resources and tools and discussed common start-of-school and year-round challenges with data quality, data systems, enrollment, and serving special populations of students with LEA-level participants. In addition to time for LEA teams to put their knowledge into practice, OSSE provided a resource fair with additional supports, office hours with OSSE staff members, and a culminating question and answer session to resolve any lingering questions LEAs may have.
