Join members of state boards of education for a regional convening in Little Rock, Arkansas, June 24-25, 2016. This regional meeting will coincide with our Equity, Civil Rights, and ESSA (invitation only) seminar and will be held at the historic Little Rock Central High School, made famous for the role it played in the desegregation of public schools in the US following Brown v. Board of Education.
Attendees will discuss issues of national and regional importance, including how the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) will impact policymaking around state accountability system design, state assessments, teacher preparation, and school improvement. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with state board colleagues from neighboring states and share their state boards’ plan to promote equity and excellence for all students. There is no charge to register for this meeting. However, the event is only open to NASBE members and attendees are responsible for their own room charges and travel expenses. NASBE will provide breakfast and lunch.
Space is limited, register today!
