Professional Development and Technical Assistance

The Division of Teaching and Learning’s (TAL) Professional Development Team works to deliver responsive systems of professional learning and high-quality technical support to District LEAs and schools. The team supports a wide range of topics and interventions through professional development, direct LEA/school-based support, the facilitation of communities of practice, and through city-wide convenings.

Technical Assistance Opportunity: Deep Dive on LEA English Learner Data

The objective of this opportunity is to examine key EL data and develop action plans to refine their EL programs. The session will benefit LEAs that want to conduct a deeper dive into their key EL data in order to develop action plans and refine their EL programs.

OSSE will provide visualizations of state and local education agency-level EL data and tools to identify trends in data related to EL achievement. By the end of the session, participants will be able to:  

  • Analyze ACCESS and PARCC data to identify your LEA’s strengths and areas for growth in serving EL students;
  • Identify additional LEA and school-level data that can help dig deeper into refining your school’s EL program;
  • Articulate next steps for addressing areas for improvement in serving ELs; and
  • Guide data interpretation discussions with school-based staff.

School leaders, data managers, EL coordinators, and teachers are strongly encouraged to participate. To register, please contact Dr. Jennifer Norton at [email protected].
