Upcoming Webinars

January 2020 Federal Update Webinar

US Capital and US flagA new year brings with it the start of the Second Session of the 116th Congress. The 2019 holiday season brought its own gift:  On December 20 of last year, the president signed into law the appropriations bills that funded programs important to the profession—and many programs saw increases.

What can we expect as the Fiscal Year 2021 process begins to unfold? Will the increases remain, are cuts possible? What impact(s) can we expect, if any, from the Impeachment Trial in the U.S. Senate? How will the election affect both appropriations and legislation? In addition, the Census is starting; are you ready to help with the count on campus?  This member exclusive webinar opportunity will cover these questions and also answer your questions in a Q & A session after the presentation.

Presenter:                                           Deborah Koolbeck, AACTE Senior Director, Government Relations

Wednesday, January 29                 12:30 – 1:30 pm               Register


Preparing Educators for Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Classrooms

Educators in our schools across the country are working with students from communities that do and do not reflect their own lived experiences. We know that outcomes for students of color increase when being taught by a teacher of their same race/ethnicity, but every educator in the school must be an equity minded leader to ensure each and every PK12 student receives high-quality, inclusive opportunities to learn and grow in the classroom. This collaborative webinar, a second in a series of discussions, focuses on strategies to increase the preparation of both teachers and leaders.  AACTE and EdPrepLab ( In Partnership with LPI and Bank Street ) are excited to provide you with an opportunity to learn from and with our dynamic webinar leaders. These experts are steadfastly advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their practice, research, and daily interactions with teachers, leaders, and community stakeholders.
