LiteracyPro’s Shannon Stangis will present this two-part training, which is an overview of how to use LACES, the management information system (MIS), for your student, class, and staff data.

Part 1: The first session focuses on navigation and data entry for the primary data elements associated with students, such as intake, assessment, enrollment, and attendance, as well as class creation, staff intake, and a brief overview of searches and reports.

Part 2: Following a question and answer period to review any questions from the Beginner LACES Training Part 1, this session will review exit follow-up procedures for exited students, exclusions to NRS participation, scheduled services, periods of participation, and a deeper dive into the NRS Tables, searches, and reports.

NoteYou will register only once for this two-part training. You must be able to attend both sessions:

  • May 9: 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. 
  • May 10: 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Staff members new to LACES who have little to no experience adding data elements into the system
  • Staff members who would like a refresher on data entry into LACES

LACES sessions will be held online using Zoom. Jane Brandt will send you the link several days before the training date, so please be sure the address you enter in your registration is accurate.
