SETDA, in partnership with the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), invites you to join other education and technology leaders in the nation’s Capitol for the eleventh annual Washington Ed Tech Policy Summit to gain insight into the education and technology issues in play in Congress and at the FCC, U.S. Department of Education and the White House.

The summit will feature bipartisan speakers focused on policy trends under consideration in Washington and will include a robust dialogue about the impact of these policy trends on the schools and districts in your state. Special attention will be given to policies related to the President’s ConnectED initiative and E-rate modernization, the prospects for ESEA reauthorization, and the status of other federal educational technology funding. Visits to the offices of your Congressional delegation will also be scheduled for those who are interested.
