Webinar: What ESSA Means for You, Your School and Your District

Join this free interactive webinar to learn what ESSA means for you, your school and your district. RSVP here 

For the first time in more than a decade—and a half-century after enactment of the country’s main K-12 law—Congress has redefined the federal role in elementary and secondary education by creating the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). In a monumental shift of authority, the new education law returns a great deal of federal power on educational issues to states and local districts.

The law also provides states and districts with significant flexibility in how they spend federal education dollars and includes a new program that has technology as a major focus.

Join this special ISTE presentation, led by ISTE’s legislative counsel Jon Bernstein, to learn what ESSA has in store, including:

  • An explanation of ESSA’s new framework, including implementation milestones
  • A deep dive into the Student Success and Academic Enrichment Grant program and how its technology and professional development provisions may benefit ISTE members
  • A federal funding forecast for next school year
  • An opportunity to get your questions answered

Date: Thursday, April 28

Time: 4 pm Eastern

Registration: RSVP here
