Last year, 45 education leaders visited historic sites from the civil rights movement throughout Mississippi and Alabama and learned lessons from past and current leaders.
The Department of Labor, in collaboration with the Council of State Governments and National Conference of State Legislatures, released a report based on the career development work of IEL and it's partners.
The Department of Justice awarded IEL $3 million to continue and expand the Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program, its career-focused mentoring model for youth with disabilities involved or at risk of becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.
This spirit of shared learning and best practices was reflected in IEL’s gathering of over 80 leaders from 27 districts and 17 state departments of education to discuss family and community engagement.
On October 24, IEL will convene Learning Lab in Washington, D.C. on Family & Community Engagement at 9:00 a.m. EST. The U.S. Department of Education will live stream the event online.
