A FREE WEBINAR with Information You Need,"ESSA School Improvement Requirements: How Will This Impact All Pennsylvania Students and Schools?", is being offered by PASA and the PA Principals Association in partnership with the PA Department of Education on Tuesday, August 7 from 10:00 - 11 a.m.

Presenters from the PDE: 

*Matt Stem, Deputy Secretary of Education
*Dr. Sherri Smith, Director of the Bureau of School Support

Description:  It has come to our attention recently that the TSI designation could affect a significant number of schools in the state, including traditionally high performing schools. For that reason, all school administrators need to understand how schools will be identified for Comprehensive School Improvement (CSI) and Targeted School Improvement (TSI) under ESSA requirements.

Join us on August 7 for this free webinar explaining this issue and how it could affect YOUR school/school district.  

Registration is limited to 500! Register by 10 a.m. on Monday, August 6.  

Connection information will be sent to registrants on August 6.
