Achieve/NSELA/NSTA Webinar on Nov. 14: Building a Science Strategy for Your School or District

Posted: Nov. 6, 2017

The new federal education law – the Every Student Succeeds Act or ESSA – includes a significant shift of decision-making to the state and local levels, and provides states and districts with flexibility to set new policy and funding priorities. District leaders nationwide are now determining their priorities under ESSA, informed by their state plans, and how they can best take advantage of the new federal education law. ESSA offers schools and districts the opportunity to rethink programs and support better student outcomes in science.

This web seminar, taking place on November 14, is cohosted by NSTA and the National Science Education Leadership Association (NSELA). The program is geared for classroom teachers, district science leaders, and administrators. Achieve’s Michael Lach will highlight proven methods that will improve the science outcomes for students and help you build a district strategy for science that can also be used in your school/district plans for ESSA. We will also examine key highlights of the new federal education law and the resources available for Science and STEM education.
