The module concentrates on Area 1: Data and the Decision-Making Process, which emphasizes the importance of:

- Using data to continuously monitor adult implementation and student progress against performance targets and district-established goals.
- Addressing achievement and growth, and in getting past opinion through the use of evidence-based practices
