New York State Education Department’s Diagnostic Tool for School and District Effectiveness (DTSDE) Learning Lab platform was launched on Friday, January 9, 2015.  The DTSDE Learning Lab, developed in collaboration between the New York State Education Department, the USNY Regents Research Fund School Innovation Team, and the Northeast Comprehensive Center, is a Learning Management System (LMS) designed to provide continued training and support to all stakeholders involved in the DTSDE School and/or District Review Process.

Participants will be offered three types of opportunities to participate in the DTSDE Learning Lab:

  • DTSDE Learning Series, divided into two sections, informs participants about DTSDE processes/protocols and specific topics of choice relevant to their role in the DTSDE review process
  • DTSDE Self Paced Courses, include a series of learning tasks and assignments aligned to the DTSDE rubric;
  • DTSDE Expert Series, where participants will get a chance to listen to experts in the educational field and talk about effective practices aligned to DTSDE.

Currently the DTSDE Learning Series is offering one of the two sections in the New to DTSDE Process to participants who have not been engaged in or are new to the DTSDE work. The New to DTSDE Process is divided into three units that include webinar recordings, PowerPoint presentations, resources, an assessment about the DTSDE review process, the DTSDE school and district visit process, and Tenets 1 through 6. The second section of the New to DTSDE Process, Audience Specific Topics, along with the self paced courses and expert series will be available in Spring 2015.
