Education Policy Matters

Policy matters. Whether Federal, State or local, education policy shapes operational practices and the eventual outcomes students realize. The Superintendent’s voice in influencing effective education policy has never been more important. Engage with your professional colleagues at WASDA’s 50th Annual Educational Conference at the Madison Concourse Hotel in Madison on May 10-12 to understand the current state of Federal and State level education policy and how it might be meaningfully improved to benefit all students.

At the Conference you will hear from national, state and local experts with respect to educational policy and its impact on practice. You will learn what is being done to advocate for effective evidence-based policy and how you can engage in that work. You will also learn about best practices that have emerged in the current policy environment.

WASDA is proud to bring you our 50th Annual Educational Conference!
