How can you advocate for your students? Join us to find out.

Good Morning ESP Leaders,

We want to share an important upcoming event with you. This will be a beneficial conversation for all educators as the conversation will include discussion around activism for American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding at the state and, especially the local level. In addition to the activism segment, the conversation will also focus on research that is revealing yet another level of disparate impact on students of color, the underrepresentation of 504-only students. This is an important factor as unidentified emotional/behavioral disabilities can manifest themselves in ways which may lead to disciplinary actions that could be avoided if students have appropriate supports.

We hope you will join us and share this information with others in your state.

Join us for a conversation and a call to action and learn what you can do to ensure the federal and state governments give students with disabilities the education they deserve.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT
