New EMIS Coordinator Training


EMIS Focused Training | EMIS General Training | New EMIS Coordinator Training


New EMIS Coordinator Training is designed for new EMIS coordinators and other district staff who work with EMIS data and EMIS reporting. We define "new" as those with 3 or fewer years of experience with EMIS reporting. We strongly recommend that all EMIS coordinators who meet this definition plan to attend this training. We also encourage you to invite other district staff who work with EMIS data and reporting to attend.

New Coordinator training is offered twice a year, in August and April. Different sessions are offered for each set of trainings.
