Tuesday, June 7
Breakout Track: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The ultimate resolution to the FY 2011 budget battle and the President’s FY 2012 budget request will bring major changes to education funding. A number of federal education programs have already been cut, and many others are in line to be cut or consolidated. Find out which programs have survived and which are gone. More importantly, learn how to reach out to legislators at every level of government to help them understand the impact of their decisions on children, teachers, and schools.
At this session you'll hear about the major changes happening in Congress and at the Dept. of Ed. Find out the future of important programs like Race to the Top, Investing in Innovation, and School Improvement Grants, including an update on ESEA Reauthorization.
You'll also learn how you can establish yourself as a valued constituent in your district and as a resource for your legislators by positively communicating your ideas and expertise and keeping in contact with them at appropriate times throughout the year.
