Proposals Are Under Review

Proposal Submissions Are Closed

The National Conference Planning Committee thanks everyone who successfully submitted one or more presentation proposal for the National ESEA Conference.



The National ESEA Conference

Kansas City, Missouri
January 30 - February 2, 2019

Formerly known as the National Title I Conference, the first annual National ESEA Conference reflects the broader focus of the recently reorganized National Assoication of ESEA State Program Administrators. The Conference is expanding to include other federal education programs in addition to Title I.


2019 Conference theme: Integrate, Innovate, Collaborate

Gone are the days when the sole emphasis was on federal education program compliance. Now, our focus has shifted to identifying and addressing the specific needs of the children who are beneficiaries of the programs funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). While students in our schools face many challenges and barriers, we recognize that access to and involvement in integrated, innovative, and collaboratively designed programs leads to successful outcomes. The National ESEA Conference in Kansas City, Missouri will feature a multitude of opportunities for each of us to INTEGRATE, INNOVATE, and COLLABORATE in ways that seek and yield better results for the students we serve.

Proposal Selection Process

Proposals Are Under Review

All proposals submitted are currently under review by a committee of federal education programs professionals from across the country. Selections are based on an averaged proposal score from multiple committee graders, as well as a balance of critical topic areas. 


Notifications on September 7th
On September 7th, those who submitted one or more proposals will receive an email indicating that each proposal has either been:

  • Provisionally selected for the Conference, or

If your proposal is provisionally selected, you will have until September 21st to sign and return the speaker contract, along with any other required materials. Once required documents are returned by all presenters and contracts have been countersigned by Conference Management, the proposal’s status will be changed to “accepted.”
