In case you missed it, ACLS has purchased a state license for Northstar Digital Literacy, which means that now students and teachers in all ACLS-funded programs can benefit from Northstar assessments, curriculum, training, and certificates. This is the second training in the Northstar series to introduce Massachusetts educators to the paid version of the Northstar platform.

In this workshop, Northstar expert Theresa Sladek will take you through the first steps you should take to get ready to use Northstar. She will describe how to accomplish the tasks needed to begin using Northstar effectively and efficiently, such as how to register students, run reports, and find and use the curricula and resources available to Northstar subscribers.
