2020 Conference theme: Together for Equity

As we integrate, innovate, and collaborate, it must be done toward the goal of equity, ensuring that every student has timely access to high quality education regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, language, ability, sexual orientation, or income. Programs funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) are designed for equity. It is essential that we combine our efforts to move this goal from dream to reality. The 2020 National ESEA Conference keynotes and breakout sessions will focus on “Together for Equity.”
