Introduction: In 2013, the NASDSE Board of Directors created a fee for service business model for State Education Agencies (SEAs). These services can be uniquely tailored to each state. These services are implemented by NASDSE staff, and it's highly skilled contractors. Please contact us to discuss how we might best help your state!
The role of the SEA is changing
SEAs must move beyond compliance, information, and training.
SEAs must be able to influence practice change in local districts
This demands both technical knowledge and adaptive skill.
SEAs are continually challenged to help school districts and local schools to improve.
Implementation science provides a roadmap, but the human side of issues continues to be a challenge.
Evidence-based practices provide direction, but implementation with fidelity and sustainability over time continues to be a concern.
