Teachers new to the EDI questionnaire require training to ensure that high-quality information is being collected. This information is invaluable to your school district as it is reported back. As a school district, you have two excellent options to facilitate this training. Your school district can take the lead on an in-person teacher training session or your teachers can participate in a HELP led webinar. To discuss your options, please contact the EDI Team.
