    Introducing data analysis into decision-making can be challenging for some organizations. The Minnesota P-20W has created an extended Regional Coaching Network to provide personal assistance to stakeholders. The network works closely with ECLDS and SLEDS users to address the technical issues some may have when applying data towards education, regional analysis, and career planning information.
