WEBINARS FOR THE ESEA COMMUNITY

The COVID-9 Coronavirus pandemic has caused a move to distance learning almost overnight. The world of education has made a shift unlike anything we have seen before. In light of that, the National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators (NAESPA) is presenting the first in what promises to be a series of webinars to address the issues facing our educators and administrators in this new landscape. We have been planning our 2021 Conference in Boston with the theme “Educating for Tomorrow”, but “Tomorrow” is here today and we want to provide you with up-to-date, timely information in the interim that can offer insight and direction as we move forward. Join us as we bring together experts in the field of education, policy, and advocacy.
