Sue Daker: Appreciate these slides; it is something we've done when determining districts to partner with.

Again...appreciate this information all in one place.

David McKay: Helping them to understand the data burden and processes

regina: We have 3 days we call “Exploration and Installation” to get them going and make the decision if they want to “play” with us. Their application is complete at end, or they can say no thank you

cherylhuffman: We conduct an on-site visit with “finalist” where cover some of the areas you mention.

Theresa Farmer: Great slides and organization of the information. The pre-selection process is strong and well developed. Thanks.

Tom Delaney (Minnesota): Using a Give/Get Chart and well written Theory of Action, plus a Data Calendar listing types of data, purpose, and schedule for collection, reporting and consideration in decision making.
