How Software Makes State and Perkins Reporting Easy
About This Video Webcast – How Software Makes State and Perkins Reporting Easy
There are many steps required for a successful work-based learning program. These steps require the management of complex processes that involve multiple stakeholders including: business partners, students, program managers, intermediaries and administration. In addition, ESSA, States, and the Federal reauthorization of Perkins now all require (or will soon require) districts to provide and report on work ready experiences down to the student level.
Despite these compliance requirements, 93% of programs are still tracked on paper, which creates multiple challenges when scaling work-based learning programs and the reporting required by multiple entities.
Award winning work based learning program veteran, Dr. Lazaro Lopez, will outline the emerging compliance requirements, and how the right software can virtually automate this process. Topics will include:
- Why is a Work Based Learning Program Crucial?
- What is Required for Successful Work Based Learning Program?
- What Compliance Issues Need to be Considered for ESSA, Perkins and Individual States
- Three Examples of How We Make Compliance Easier
