GATE Equity Webinar Series

OSPI Graduation: A Team Effort (GATE) is conducting a monthly webinar series on best practices in relation to the OSPI performance indicators, such as chronic absenteeism, behavior, 9th grade failure, post-graduation enrollment and graduation. Each month we invite successful practitioners to tell their story of how they are finding success. These workshops would be valuable for partners who wish to improve support systems, data use, and instruction in an effort to increase student achievement. Join us the second Wednesday of the month from 10-11 a.m.
