More than 60 teachers and administrators gathered in Portland on Oct. 24 and 25 to participate in the Direct Access to Achievement Project’s two-day certification session. A similar session in the Medford area earlier in the month drew 50 educators from Southern Oregon. Attendees participated in an online study group course to prepare for the training. Participants who successfully complete the two-day course become certified trainers for the Oregon DATA Project, enabling them to support the work of data teams in their district. The Oregon DATA Project has certified more than 400 trainers through the rigorous training.
