Alumna Lindsay Torrico ('09 Los Angeles) to Speak on Webinar Panel about NCLB Waivers

Will expanded learning time = better outcomes? Join this webinar on 12/8, to learn more and to hear from our Alumna, Lindsay Torrico ('09 Los Angeles).
Meeting Description: The U.S. Department of Education has established a waiver process to help states obtain additional flexibility in meeting No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) performance standards. States across the nation have begun to apply for these new waivers, which were issued this fall. The waivers give educators as well as state and local leaders greater flexibility in exchange for developing clear and rigorous plans to improve educational outcomes.
How should states implement waivers to effectively improve expanded learning opportunities as well as student academic success?
Three members of the Ready by 21 National Partnership -- the Forum for Youth Investment, American Association of School Administrators and United Way Worldwide -- seek to answer this question in the upcoming webinar. Hear what the education and youth development communities have to say about the waivers' implications for school districts and community-based organizations.
