2022 Spring Ed Tech Advocacy and Policy Fly-Ins
Following two years of unprecedented digital learning growth, Congress’s 2022 agenda is shaping up to be incredibly important for schools. Don’t miss the 2022 Spring Ed Tech Advocacy and Policy Fly-Ins scheduled for Wednesday, March 9 (virtual) and Thursday, May 12 (in-person).
Join CoSN, ISTE, SETDA, and SIIA in March for a virtual “fly-in” focused on E-rate, cybersecurity, student data privacy, and the fiscal year 2023 appropriations process, followed by in-person meetings in May with Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, and the U.S. Department of Education focused on the status of the National Educational Technology Plan (NETP), digital citizenship, equity and inclusion.
The advocacy fly-ins, designed as two separate but complementary events, ensure leaders hear from us at key decision times. These meetings provide an opportunity to brief decision makers about your school’s needs and shape lawmakers’ and executive branch leaders’ understanding and perspectives about edtech policies and programs.
Now more than ever, your voice is important to improving federal edtech policy and funding. We will provide training and preparation in advance of our advocacy meetings with Congressional staff so that you can make a significant impact and serve as an essential resource to the congressional offices that serve your community.
Attendees have the option to register for one event or both events. The cost to attend both events is $125. If you would like to register for only one event rather than both, costs are listed below.
