MAASE Highlights

The annual Technical Assistance and Monitoring Conference was a great success!

The MAASE ISD Collaborative CoP held their annual Technical Assistance and Monitoring Conference last week Thursday and Friday. Thursday, Laurie VanderPloeg challenged the group of over 70, to change the state's focus and to support work that will influence results not just compliance for students.  Laurie led groups through influence mapping and root cause analysis for indicators impacting student outcomes. On Friday our regional panel answered questions and shared resources related to General Supervision Monitoring and Technical Assistance. We would like to thank our panel, Julie Gordon, Dave Krantz, Kim Wooster, and Teresa Boyer your knowledge, honesty, and collaboration is greatly appreciated.
