    WELCOmE

    Dear Colleagues:

    Welcome to the Council of Chief State School Officers’ 2016 Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. This year, we are focusing on how states are leading at this critical time during the transition to a reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Through the bold leadership of chief state school officers, we helped pass the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in 2015 to give states the additional flexibility and authority they need to best meet the needs of all kids. This year’s Legislative Conference will focus on the new law and how states can begin implementation aligned with their strategic vision.

    This is a historic time. At this meeting, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) looks forward to working with each state chief on continued advocacy for strong state leadership in education, as well as rich discussions on the next steps for implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act in your state.

    We will kick off the meeting with the ESSA Implementation Workshop on Sunday where chief state school officers and their senior leadership teams can learn more about key parts of the law and work closely with experts to get their questions answered. On Sunday night, we will welcome our friends from the National Association of State Boards of Education for a reception and dinner. At the dinner, New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker will speak about the current political landscape in D.C. and across the country.

    On Monday, we will kick off the morning with a State of the States address to highlight the great work we have accomplished across this country as well as our priorities for the upcoming year. After that, we will dig into several topics, state leadership on ESSA, stakeholder engagement and a deep dive into key parts of the law. Finally, newly confirmed U.S. Secretary of Education John King will join us for a discussion.

    On Tuesday, we will spend our day on Capitol Hill speaking with leaders on the House and Senate Education Committees and their staff. We also will award the 2016 CCSSO Distinguished Service Award to the four lead architects of ESSA: Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chairman John Kline (R-MN), and Representative Robert “Bobby” Scott (D-VA). State Chiefs will then have the opportunity to meet with their Congressional delegations throughout the afternoon.

    We look forward to the days ahead as we dig into critical conversations about how states are leading at this important time in education and how CCSSO can best serve you and the students in your state during this time.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Minnich Tony Evers Executive Director State Superintendent of Public Instruction The Council of Chief State School Officers Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction President of the CCSSO Board of Directors
