					                       Huerfano TDIP Midyear Progress Report

The TDIP process has been in full swing the past four and a half months and this midyear
progress report is to inform you of the exciting things that have occurred so far in partnership with
EdisonLearning. The tasks and action steps listed below are in the EdisonLearning-Huerfano
district contract and are services that have been mutually agreed upon. This chart does not
capture the many conversations, meetings, phone calls and emails that have happened behind
the scenes. We are eager to help and support you as you continue to work through the TDIP
process. For those action steps that are progress, we are ready to assist you in moving forward to
support the students of Huerfano School District.
