Advancing System Productivity Webinar Series

Advancing System Productivity Webinar Series

Edunomics Lab, in partnership with Council of Chief State School Officers and the Building State Capacity and Productivity Center, convened a Community of Practice to support a group of leaders in all states interested in developing a state-specific framework and strategy set related to the SEA’s role in increasing productivity.

This series of five webinars is designed to help Regional Comprehensive Centers support state education agency (SEA) leaders as they explore how they can better support districts and schools to operate in a more productive way. Specifically, the sessions focus on the appropriate role for SEAs in building and using information systems, designing funding and regulatory structures, using their leverage over costs and making the case for productivity to districts and schools.

Webinar 1: Making the Case for Productivity
In this webinar, we introduce the definition of productivity that we will use throughout the series and discuss why it matters. Then we dive into the role that states play in messaging productivity to districts and schools.
