Announcing New Workshop Format for Upcoming Workshops - End of Year Procedures & MA/PA State Reporting

30 Apr, 2018

The iPass Support Team is excited to announce a new workshop format that will deliver valuable training to more district staff and provide “hands-on” personalized coaching for registered attendees!

Starting with our upcoming End of Year Procedures and State Reporting Workshops, our workshops will now consist of 2 parts:

  • Part I: Group-Based Training Webinar – Each registered workshop attendee will be sent a link to a scheduled online training webinar for the workshop. The webinar will be interactive, allowing participants to ask questions and learn from others in the session. The webinar link can be shared with other district users so that they can benefit from the training session along with you at no extra cost per person. The online format will also reduce your time away from other duties and eliminate travel time and costs. Registered users will receive a recording of the session.
  • Part II: Personalized Online Coaching – Each registered workshop attendee will receive a block of “hands-on” personalized coaching hours with an iPass Support Team member. The online coaching sessions will be scheduled in one-hour blocks. Breaking the time up into multiple sessions will allow you to receive timely assistance as you move through the process. The Support Team member will provide guidance tailored to your level of experience and need. Registered workshop attendees will be provided with a calendar of available time slots to schedule their coaching sessions.

Note: You may invite additional staff to listen in during your coaching sessions but to receive their own coaching sessions they must register for the workshop. If you have multiple staff with different roles, they should register and pay the workshop fee to receive their own personalized coaching sessions.
