Course Description

In this session, attendees receive an in-depth overview of all three SLDS dashboards (District, School and Teacher), the student profile page, and the Teacher Resource Link (TRL). This includes reviewing Enrollment/Withdrawal data, Attendance data, and Assessment data from the Historical tab. The session will also include an extensive look at the “differentiation tool” (Operational Tab). Attendees will find invaluable ways to encourage teachers to use SLDS by reviewing exactly what teachers can see in SLDS. Participants will leave with a deep understanding of the three dashboards within SLDS. This session will also look at some of the other tools within SLDS such as: Local Assessments (Renaissance Learning), a refresher of the differentiation tool, High School Feedback, Usage Reports, and the SLDS Parent Portal. This session will also offer an overview of several other tools, such as the IIS tool, the Gifted Eligibility form, Professional Development (FIP modules), the Learning Object Repository (LOR) and the GOFAR functionality. Participants will see how SLDS has grown over the past several years as it provides a “path to personalized learning.”  Please bring a charged laptop or other device that can be used to access SLDS and the login and password used to access SLDS. If you do not have a login and password, please contact the person in your district or organization who sets these up.

Metro RESA makes every effort to provide high quality professional learning experiences at low costs to teachers in the Metro Atlanta area. Because we often have to pay instructors, rental fees for locations, and for materials, we must make decisions at least two weeks in advance about cancellation of classes when we do not have enough registrants.

Therefore, our cancellation/no show policy is as follows:

  • If you choose PERSONAL PAY as your payment method: You must use a credit card to complete your registration for all classes with Metro RESA.  We will happily issue a refund for any class as long as you notify us that you need to cancel AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE CLASS.  You will be refunded via the same method of payment within two business weeks.
  • If you choose SCHOOL PAY as your payment method: Your school will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.  
  • If you choose DISTRICT PAY as your payment method: Your district will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.


Refunds and reimbursements are not transferable to other classes. Refunds for cancellations (if the participant cancels at least two weeks prior to class OR if Metro RESA cancels the class) will be processed within two business weeks of the date of the course.
