National Convenings


National Convenings

SREB annually convenes thousands of K-12 teachers, counselors, principals, technology center directors and state and district education agency personnel at our national conferences, forums, workshops, webinars and more.

What makes our events special? We bring teachers and leaders together to learn and share research-based, classroom-tested tools and strategies that address the real problems they face.

SREB’s Summer Conferences feature over 500 sessions that go to the heart of K-12 educational challenges, such as ensuring equitable access to quality learning and addressing the effects of poverty. This year’s events will be held July 8-13 in the Hilton Baltimore and the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.

SREB’s State Leaders Forum convenes legislators, policymakers, state board members, secondary and postsecondary education leaders, and workforce development agency representatives to explore policies that help youth graduate from high school with a head start on the postsecondary credentials they need to secure good jobs in high-demand fields.

The National Technology Centers That Work Leaders Forum brings state and local career and technical education leaders together to network and share promising practices for addressing the needs of their diverse students and communities.
