OSSE Start of School Summit

June 11, 2019 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Following up on the successful 2018 Start of School campaign,OSSE is once again holding a Start of School Summit to support LEAs in becoming start-of-school ready. This event will bring together key points of contact from LEAs across the city on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at the Gallaudet University Kellogg Conference Hotel.

During the summit, OSSE staff will share resources and tools and discuss common start-of-school and year-round challenges regarding data quality, data systems, enrollment, and serving special populations of students with LEA-level participants. In addition to time for LEA teams to put their knowledge into practice, OSSE will provide a resource fair with additional supports and office hours with OSSEstaff members, and a culminating question and answer session to resolve any lingering questions LEAs may have. Held from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., theStart of School Summit promises to provide deep and worthwhile role-specific training for LEA staff members; more information can be found in our list of sessions.

LEAs interested in attending should encourage their DataManager(s) and their main LEA-level points of contact for English learners, enrollment audit, special education, students with disabilities, and transportation to attend.
