2020 Conference theme: Together for Equity

As we integrate, innovate, and collaborate, we must make sure that this work is being done with the goal of equity, making sure that “every student has access to the educational resources and rigor they need at the right moment in their education across race, gender, ethnicity, language, disability, sexual orientation, family background and/ or family income.” (CCSSO, Leading for Equity). Programs funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) are designed for equity and we must all work together to make this goal a reality, and ensure that all students have access to and receive the education and resources they need and deserve. The 2020 National ESEA Conference will focus on how our combined efforts will lead us to this goal of equity.
