Serving and supporting U.S. state and territorial education agencies

While each state education agency is organized differently and specific job titles vary, SETDA members include state educational technology directors, as well as state and regional curriculum and instruction, assessment and professional development leaders committed to advancing technology-enabled school reform and improvement strategies in their respective states and nationally. SETDA members do this through policy development and implementation, including through technical assistance to – and direct support of – traditional and charter school districts across their state.

 

Questions about state membership rosters, benefits, responsibilities, and status can be directed to Tera Daniels, SETDA Director of Administration and Membership, at tdaniels@setda.org or by calling 202-715-6636 x701.
