The Department has scheduled a labor-management conference for February 15 and 16 in Denver for leaders of school districts and labor unions from across the country to identify ways that collaborative labor-management relationships, policies, and agreements can directly drive academic achievement. The Department invited about 2,000 districts that secured federal funding in the past year under major programs.
