ACPE, with sponsorship from Dell Computer Corp. is presenting a televideoconference to explore No Child Left Behind legislation and the role of technology. The ACPE board felt it necessary to provide an opportunity to get this important information to you now! We will follow-up with more information at our May Conference.
Please feel free to distribute this information to others in your organization.
WHEN: Wednesday, January 29, 2003, TIME: 1 P.M. to 3:30 P.M.
WHERE: Televideoconference at an ESD near you. Please contact your ESD for more information about their participation.
We will provide an updated list of participating locations to the ACPE BOF group each week.
WHAT: Designed to improve student achievement, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 is a landmark decision in education reform. Embodying four key principals - accountability for results; flexibility; parental choice; and scientifically proven methods - the act is a sweeping overhaul of federal support of elementary and secondary education.
The myriad of initiatives involves 10 separate entitlements in which technology is a key component. Your federal programs personnel may already be at work on these initiatives.
The Sage Team, Inc., a national consulting group working with business and education, will present a session of best practices and information from regional meetings around the country. It is intended to take 1,600 pages of legislation and translate that information into something that your district can take away and easily implement and understand to best leverage this funding program. BONUS: Representatives from Washington and Oregon will also be a part of this presentation to give information about each state's process.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Technology Directors, Director of Federal Programs, Instructional Technology Directors
Key components of the legislation will be highlighted, with a special emphasis on the role of technology in each entitlement. If you are looking for ways to meet the requirement of No Child Left Behind and increase your school's investment in technology, you will not want to miss this important session. ACPE will sponsor follow-up sessions at our May conference, but school district's need this information now!
