IDC TA specialist and State Liaison Chris Thacker has a need for speed. In fact, over the years Chris has attended dozens of GT road races across the country, but it’s his own sprint to California’s legendary Laguna Seca Raceway that will forever stand out as his race to the race.
Christina MacDonald is an IDC TA specialist. In that role, she helps state and local education agencies consider their unique context and vision and works with them to identify how data can support the next steps in achieving their unique goals. She was kind enough to sit down with us recently to answer some important questions.
Rachel Wilkinson is an IDC State Liaison who provides technical assistance and support around IDEA Part B data, co-leads data-quality peer groups, and assists with the development of tools and resources based on needs from the field. She took time out of her busy schedule to sit down with us.
