REL Southwest’s Janice Keizer and Santa Fe Indian School’s Dr. Anya Dozier Enos (Santa Clara Pueblo) will discuss the motivation for and development of the evaluation system, including key considerations and a roadmap of the major steps of the project. The event also will feature a panel with Dr. Glenabah Martinez (Taos Pueblo/Diné), director of the Institute for American Indian Education at the University of New Mexico; Dr. Timothy Begaye (Diné), education program specialist at the Bureau of Indian Education; and Dr. Mark Ericson, Santa Fe Indian School’s high school community-based education teacher and member of the evaluation system’s design team.
