2018 State Leaders Forum
Convening Targeted Intersection of Perkins V, ESSA and WIOA

December 12 – December 13, 2018
Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center
Atlanta, GA

The 2018 State Leaders Forum focused on the integration of three pieces of federal legislation — the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act, the Every Student Succeeds Act and the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, also known as Perkins V.

Teams of state education and workforce leaders — including chief state school officers, state higher education executive officials and leaders of state community and technical college systems — met to discuss and plan strategies for integrating the components of these laws.

Representatives from the Association for Career and Technical Education, the U.S. Department of Labor and other leading organizations participated in panel and table discussions.

SREB provides follow-up technical assistance to attending states.
