2024 Conference Theme: Create the Possibilities

As educators we are blessed every day with many opportunities to create the possibilities for our students to reach their potential. Success is obtained in various ways, but we hold many pieces through the use of federal funds to create new avenues for our students to navigate. How we utilize our base component of the comprehensive needs assessment to build our school improvement plans and then our budgets can create unfathomable possibilities for our students, teachers, administrators, parents guardians, and community. We can cultivate a creative culture for our schools to reach for the stars with the possibilities.


Join us in Portland, OR or online at the National ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) Conference as we Create the Possibilities...


  • to review current research and data to guide instruction for students' success,
  • for students by exploring vendor resources,
  • to develop professional learning for faculty and staff to increase effectiveness,
  • to build strong connections with our parents and stakeholders,
  • to provide all children, in public and nonpublic schools, significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and
  • to close educational achievement gaps as defined in ESEA.


As educators, we hold the key to create the possibilities of building the capacity of education professionals to provide children served by ESEA programs with a high-quality education.
