About the Conference

For more than two decades, the Annual Statewide ESSA Conference has brought together educators from across Illinois to share information about their creative, effective and replicable classroom and school practices.  It also highlights national and state education policies and programs.  The Center: Resources for Teaching and Learning collaborates with the Illinois State Board of Education and other education organizations in the planning and presentation of the program.

The conference theme is “The Equity Imperative”, reflecting the ESSA Conference’s intention to provide constructive conversations for effective practices that lead to improvements for all students in all communities in the state. Some sessions at the conference will be presented by ISBE professionals on the details of the ESSA State Plan. Equally important, however, are the conference emphases on personal teacher/student interactions, school policies, and educational strategies that enhance achievement and growth across the curriculum.

We look forward to seeing you in February.
