** This workshop has already taken place. Please contact Laura Patton if you are interested in purchasing the recording of the 2-Hour session. **

This fall we are offering one 2-Hour Remote Classroom Workshop that will take users through the steps to report Massachusetts October 2019 SIMS, SCS and EPIMS via SIF Transmission. This workshop is for staff new to the state reporting process or staff in need of a refresher.

The Workshop session is open to unlimited district staff to allow all staff involved in the state reporting process to participate. Districts will receive a recording of the session.
