Congress passed ESSA in 2015, but one area still challenging schools is the tiers for evidence-based interventions and materials. In a recent edWebinar, “Professional Learning in Action: Evidence-Based Practices for Student Success,” leaders from the Ohio Department of Education explained how a statewide initiative is helping administrators and teachers not only understand the tiers but also provide assistance in selecting the best materials for their students.
Learn about Ohio’s perspective on the use of evidence to support professional learning at the state level, in districts and in schools.
