2017 Equity and Excellence Conference: Expand your Equity Toolkit

The Exceptional Student Services and Federal Programs Units at the Colorado Department of Education will be hosting the third annual Equity & Excellence Conference on November 2-3 at the Inverness Hotel in Englewood, Colorado. The theme of this year’s conference is “Expand Your Equity Toolkit”. CDE's goal for this conference is for attendees from diverse professional backgrounds to collaborate and come away from the conference with tools and resources for putting equity into action in their schools. 

Thank you for your interest in this year’s Equity and Excellence Conference.  The conference is sold out and we are unable to open any additional slots.  Next year’s conference will be announced via the CDE Scoop, so please subscribe if you are not already on the mailing list.
