Summer Conference - SAVE THE DATES - July 12, 13 and 14, 2017 

Sixteenth DATAG Summer Conference Celebration!  Register shortly after March Meeting

In our 17th year, DATAG is pleased to continue our support of appropriate use of data for instructional improvement at our 2017 Summer Conference, July 13 and 14, and at our pre-conference on July 12, in Saratoga Springs, NY.

Thursday Sessions:

Friday Features:

Miscellaneous Details:

Remember continental breakfast and lunch are included Thursday and Friday.  The Saratoga Hilton still has a few rooms left in the DATAG room block.  We have space for many more registrants who are driving in for the day or who will stay at other locations in the area if the Hilton is fully booked.  

Go to and click on the Summer Conference link in the menu bar at the top of the page.  Reading down the page, you’ll find a link to register, to submit a proposal for one of the few remaining slots, and farther down a link to register for a room at the conference hotel.

Perhaps one of the best parts of the DATAG Summer Conference is the opportunity to network with other districts and vendors across New York that are doing the kind of work that you do.  

Registration is now open at the link lower on this page.  There you will also find an online form with which you can propose a session that you would like to present to your colleagues, and farther down the page, a hotel reservation link to book at the Saratoga Hilton.

Please forward this to others in your district, particularly those involved in teacher evaluation, APPR and ESSA, and data analysis so they know what they will miss if they don’t attend.  Invite them to join the free DATAG listserv on our website if they are not already enrolled and they will receive updates on conference programs as plans are finalized.  

We hope to see you there.
