Training Schedule for LACES Data Management System — Literacy Pro.

August 22, 2018

Dear Program Directors,

ACLS is pleased to announce the training schedule for the LACES Data Management System. Shannon Stangis from Literacy Pro Systems, will be offering a full day Beginner-Level training from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm (see sample agenda). We are offering four sessions of this training at three different locations:

  1. September 26—Worcester
  2. September 27—Holyoke
  3. October 1—Malden
  4. October 3—Malden

Registration is limited to 50 participants per session and choice of session is decided on a first-come, first-served basis. The address and contact information for each training location can be found on the registration form.

Agencies that were awarded an FY19 grant or received a one-year transitional funding grant are required to register two members of their staff to be trained. Agencies with a compelling need to train more than two staff members can contact Barbara Pope to make those needs known. Every attempt will be made to accommodate reasonable training requests.

Participants are required to bring their own laptops. Optimally, laptops will have Excel and/or Adobe Reader for viewing reports, but minimum requirements do include:
