What will you need to participate? A computer with an internet connection and telephone. It's free to participate!

In January, a policy brief on school facilities and student achievement were mailed to all superintendents. The brief was intended to be a starting point for talking about the best way the work to improve facilities can help move education and student achievement forward. If you didn't get a copy of the brief and would like one, let us know. Attend this webinar to further the conversation started in the policy brief.
