Join a Delegation of Superintendents and School Business Officials this Summer in Washington, D.C.

Help ensure that our nation's school system leaders and school business officials are driving policy decisions. With more focus than ever on public education, the students in your district need a strong advocate.

Educational opportunities include panel discussions with key Capitol Hill staff, a legislative breakfast featuring elected officials, the latest information on how to work with the current administration and time for you to meet with your representatives. 

Confirmed sessions:

EDUCATION AND THE MEDIA: An off-the-record, non-partisan conversation and analysis of the state of elections, Congress and the White House, the impact on schools and covering and reporting on education. Featuring Sam Feist, Washington Bureau Chief, CNN; Alyson Klein, Education Week; and Elissa Nadworny, NPR.

ELECTIONS AND EDUCATION: This year's mid-term elections could bring significant shifts to Congress, not to mention the impact of state and local elections. Lake Research will provide insight and analysis into the latest election polling, what it could mean for outcomes and how it could impact schools.

HIGHER EDUCATION AND TEACHER PREPARATION: As districts face increasing difficulty recruiting teachers, administrators and other educators, Congress is considering reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. This panel will share details on the status of that process and a new bill's impact on teacher preparation, as well as related research on recruiting and retaining teachers.
