The Alliance for Excellent Education and the Linked Learning Alliance Invite You to Attend a Webinar
2016 Linked Learning Opportunities: How New Federal Education Law Supports Quality Linked Learning
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
1:00–1:30 p.m. (PST)
Panelists Christopher Cabaldon, President, Linked Learning Alliance
Phillip Lovell, Vice President of Policy and Advocacy for Comprehensive High School Reform, Alliance for Excellent Education
On December 10, 2015, President Barack Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the bill to replace No Child Left Behind (NCLB). This new law provides greater flexibility to states to continue reforms that align with their recently adopted college- and career-ready standards. For the state of California, which has undergone changes in its own accountability system, ESSA provides an opportunity for school districts implementing Linked Learning pathways to continue to be innovative in their approach to ensure equitable outcomes for all students.
This webinar will provide an overview of the vision for the Linked Learning field over the next five years; highlight the recent recognition of the expansion of Linked Learning by the White House as a next-generation high school initiative; discuss how the new federal law can specifically support the implementation of high quality Linked Learning in California; and highlight specific strategies that state and district leaders can use with the new federal policy to support, sustain, and advance the work of ensuring that all of California’s students are truly college and career ready upon graduating from high school.
Panelists will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the nation.
Support for this webinar is provided by the James Irvine Foundation.
