  1. 2018 DMAC Academy

    DMAC is user-friendly, dynamic and ever-changing based on requests from Texas educators. Each day will highlight new features in the software as well as provide you with tips and tricks for using it efficiently at your school. The DMAC Academy will provide an opportunity for hands-on experience of the different applications within DMAC Solutions and how they can be used to:

    • disaggregate data
    • manage local assessments
    • track student achievement
    • monitor progress, plus much more!

    Each day of the Academy will focus on a different audience and different applications. Participants can register for one, two or all three days of the Academy.

    Day 1 – DMAC for Administrators, Counselors and Campus Staff

    • During this training, participants will learn how to utilize the pieces of DMAC specifically designed for Administrators, Counselors, Testing Coordinators, Interventionists and other campus or district staff members. We’ll share tips and tricks highlighting relevant reports to analyze, trend, and compare STAAR and TELPAS data along with how to generate reports related to accountability measures. We will also show you how to create and report on local assessments (aligned to STAAR, AP or ELPS standards), develop campus and district plans and other useful ways to utilize DMAC to its full potential.

    Day 2—DMAC for Teachers

    • During this training, teachers will learn how to access data in DMAC quickly and efficiently in order to locate their students and help improve instruction in the classroom. We will demonstrate how to create quality local assessments aligned to STAAR standards using the TAG test item bank and show you how to effortlessly analyze your results by establishing the 1-click reports using the Teacher Dashboards in TEKScore.

    Day 3 – Creating Student Plans & Documentation in DMAC

    • With DMAC, Teachers and Administrators can quickly find students, access their state and local assessment history and make adjustments to plans, record notes or attach file and forms. All data seamlessly travels with the student as they advance from grade to grade or change campuses. This training is all about student data. With web-based applications such as Student Portfolio, LPAC, RtI, PGP and SSI, users can easily create digital documentation for individual students. Batch features are also available for certain pieces allowing you to modify more than one plan at one time.

  4. Edspiration 2018

    The Education Service Center, Region 2, is pleased to announce a region-wide professional development opportunity for all public school district administrators, faculty, staff, and community members. This year we are offering Edspiration 2018—Igniting the Passion for Education, a one-day conference event scheduled for August 14, 2018 from 8:30a to 4:00p at the American Bank Center in downtown Corpus Christi.

    Edspiration 2018 will feature numerous concurrent breakout sessions on a wide variety of topics based on the following education-related strands: curriculum and instruction, leadership, and operations. The sessions will contain information relevant to the needs of the diverse student population in Region 2, and will appeal to multiple audiences.

    This event will conclude with a motivational and inspirational keynote presentation by Victor Rios, Ph.D., Professor at University of California—Santa Barbara. Dr. Rios survived a childhood surrounded by drugs and gangs and dropped out of school twice—once in the 8th grade, and then again in high school after re-entering school. After witnessing his best friend get shot and killed during a gang-related gun fight, Dr. Rios made the courageous decision to leave gang life behind. With the help of a special teacher, he re-entered school where he graduated and went on to higher education where he earned a doctorate degree from the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Rios is the co-winner of the 2013 Oliver Cromwell Cox Award for his book, “Punished; Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys,” and his theory that terms such as “at risk youth” is a driving force behind his message of the importance of educators’ roles in young lives.

    All participants attending Edspiration 2018 are asked to pre-register for the event
