Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this presentation is to share a new way of managing important human capital management data and resources that can promote effective growth for all stakeholders within a school district.
Share how and what data the RDSS collects and how it can be used to make decisions within a school/district.
Showcase the Learning Library as an area for educational stakeholders (teachers, coaches, principals, superintendents, etc.) to continue to grow within their practices using a vast variety of ever growing resources.
Show how teacher-principal partnership and principal-superintendent partnership can collaborate to create and carry out Educator Goal Plans (EGP) as a way to continue growing in effective practices.


We will be reviewing our RDSS system and explaining how it can make professional learning and growth a reality in both online and in person models.
