IDC Interactive Institutes
on High-Quality Data & the SSIP

In collaboration with DaSy, ECTA, NCSI, & NTACT

The IDC Interactive Institutes on High-Quality Data & the SSIP provided state teams opportunities to network and learn from each other to enhance the quality of the SSIP. These Interactive Institutes focused on building capacity of states to obtain and use high-quality data to plan, implement, and evaluate their SSIP. States were able to interact with other state teams and TA providers to further develop and improve state SSIP plans.
