Data Tech Goals

  • Improve Data Integrity: Each program achieves 70% accuracy on Data Audits. State Office will send data audit results for tracking/monitoring to Tanya Dupue,
  • Achieve 100% Data Tech NRS Certification by 12/31/08 : Data Techs will send copies of their NRS certificates, or summary reports, to NM DATA
  • Improve Communications: Between NM DATA and Data Techs (to be tracked through NM DATA surveys). Between Data Techs and Directors and Teachers (to be tracked at the program level); Orientation to be given by the Data Tech. 90% Data Techs use NMAEA Data Forum (to be tracked by NM DATA). Training to increase skills and knowledge among Data Techs; ex: Data terminology and Queries (tool: NMAEA Data Forum). Apprenticeship Program for new Data Techs (committee to lead effort: Aida Lopez, Donna Harvey, Melody Simpson, Rosemary Johnston, Tanya T-Depue, Debbie Maldonado) *As a courtesy, Program Directors will contact State Office (Harrison) when a new Data Tech is hired. Online Surveys to determine Data Tech training needs (owner: NM DATA)
