District Administration welcomes education policy expert Robert Balfanz for this web seminar about what the last 10 years of research has found when it comes to improving the most challenged and lowest-performing schools, as well as the implications of the Trump administration and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos on these efforts.

Balfanz is research professor at the Center for the Social Organization of Schools at Johns Hopkins University School of Education, where he is co-director of the Talent Development Secondary reform model and director of the Everyone Graduates Center. The panel for this web seminar will also include grant funding expert Paula Love, who will highlight some available sources of funding for schools and districts to support these efforts.  

As states persevere to construct and submit their plans for meeting the requirements for school improvement under ESSA, and as districts get ready to meet these requirements over the next year, this is a must-attend event for any district or school leader.
