I am currently employed as the Data Specialist for the South East Education Cooperative (SEEC), which is a regional education association (or ESA) based out of Fargo, North Dakota. The SEEC is one of eight education service agencies in North Dakota, providing programs and services to 40 school districts in the southeastern region of the state. In total, the 40 school districts in our service region provide education for over 35,000 students.
In my role as Data Specialist, my primary duty involves creating evaluation plans and collecting evaluation data for the various professional learning programs and services that the SEEC offers each year. Additionally, I am involved with assisting my colleagues to write evaluation plans for their grant applications. I am also involved with compiling and reporting data on the collective reach and impact of all of the eight education service agencies statewide.
