Making It Work: Implementing California's New Vision for School Success
2016 EdSource Symposium

REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT HAS CLOSED

About the EdSource Symposium

California is in the midst of a historic drive to further educational equity and promote school success—but will the outcomes match the state’s ambitions? Will the move from test-based accountability to a more complex system measuring school climate, student engagement, and academic achievement make a difference?  Will students end up better prepared for college and careers?

In our 2016 Symposium, “Making it Work: Implementing California's New Vision for School Success,” EdSource will offer a timely, in-depth look at these reforms. Attendees will leave with need-to-know information about the changes and the extent to which new ways of assessing success can translate into improved education outcomes.

 

Presenters include:

  • State Board of Education President Michael Kirst
  • Opportunity Institute Co-Founder Christopher Edley, Jr.
  • Policy Analysis for California Education Executive Director David Plank
  • Learning Policy Institute President Linda Darling-Hammond
  • Legislative Policy Analyst Mac Taylor.

Who should attend?

School district leaders, parent leaders, advocates, teachers, policy experts, and elected officials -- and anyone who is committed to improving public education in the state. 

Topics Include:

  • What is the budget outlook for implementation of California's reform initiatives?
  • How feasible will it be for California to use multiple measures to assess school improvement? 
  • How will schools benefit from California's drive to replace top-down mandates emphasizing sanctions and punishment?
  • How will schools improve school climate -- and measure it? 
  • What are better forms of assessment? Where does social-emotional learning fit in?
