Pathway to a Data Use Culture in Montana Conference

The third annual Montana Data Use Conference will be held at the Strand Union Building on the beautiful Montana State University – Bozeman campus. The dates for the 1.5 day conference are September 19 – 20, 2018.

The State of Montana uses the GEMS Data Warehouse for research and evaluation purposes and this conference will highlight the research we sponsor. We seek to understand more about schools and their students, specifically where they struggle and where they thrive so that we can better understand how to help every student succeed.

Who Should Attend?  Anyone with an interest in education data from PreK through postsecondary–superintendents, principals, teachers, board members, university faculty/staff, university students, local education agency staff, state education agency staff, IT/technical staff and directors.
