MISA Professional Network Centres

The Managing Information for Student Achievement (MISA) initiative is increasing both provincial and local capacity to work with data and information to support improved student outcomes. An important part of the Local Capacity Building portion of the initiative includes supporting seven MISA Professional Network Centres (PNCs) across the province; six regional and one French-language centre.

The MISA PNCs function as linked professional learning communities and complement the efforts of individual boards and schools. The centres assist in building local capacity to work with data in support of evidence-informed decision making and undertake a broad range of local research in this area.
