Because there is never enough money to meet all needs, needs assessments are conducted to identify and select the right focus for your work before doing the work right.  Federal funding requires each district to conduct an annual comprehensive needs assessment that will be used to prioritize needs, set goals, develop reform plans and budget ESEA funds as a consolidated process. A needs assessment focuses on the ends or outcomes rather than the means. A needs assessment then leads to action that will improve programs, services, organizational structure and operations. This workshop is designed to help establish some procedures for conducting a district comprehensive needs assessment or provide the opportunity to examine current procedures. In addition, the process for setting up WISEgrants access will be detailed as well as an opportunity to network with others about needs assessments and program planning.


Key Goals

  • Introduction of the new WISEgrants application process and structure for ESEA and IDEA.
  • Examine current district comprehensive needs assessment procedures and formats or structures.
  • Understand how to triangulate data together to provide an in-depth picture of the district and its schools.
  • Gather strategies and tools for collecting and analyzing relative data.
  • Review ways to utilize data for a comprehensive plan.
  • Explore how to use systems and structures to monitor and revise established goals.
  • Network with other districts.


CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
