Opportunities for Museums and Staff

Represent your Museum at the 2018 Statewide Every Student Succeeds Conference!!

The Center for Teaching and Learning, in collaboration with the Illinois State Board of Education, has organized an annual conference highlighting federal and state initiatives (currently focused, especially, on the Every Student Succeeds Act) and many other creative and proven educational approaches. This year, ESSA Conference officials are reaching out to some of the state’s most valuable resources that have hitherto not received the attention they deserve at this conference – the excellent museums across Illinois that offer rich resources supporting the educational efforts of public and private schools.  Conference will be held February 12, 13, 14, 2018, at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Chicago.  Click here to learn more.
