Driving Towards Solutions: Louisiana Department of Education

Here's a map I created in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Education and their Non-Tested Grades and Subjects (NTGS) group. The image portrays the NTGS journey towards developing ways to track student and teacher success in subjects that don't use traditional metrics such as Career and Technical Education. Members of the various NTGS Workgroups signed the road map to show their support of this vision of student achievement.
