55th Washington Policy Seminar

Session Information & Resources

The Washington Policy Seminar took place

March 13-16, 2019.



The Washington Policy Seminar (WPS), IEL's EPFP capstone event, is designed to help you connect more deeply to the national policy discourse on education and to make connections between the federal and state levels. You will go behind the scenes on key education policies, closely examine the implications of federal decisions on the states, and have opportunities to share across sites on how your states and communities are addressing systemic issues in support of all learners. WPS is your front row seat to education policy inside the Beltway and connection to education leaders from across the country!
