National Magnet School Month begins in February. There are many ways for you to participate and get involved!

Policy Conference Update
There's still time to register for the 2020 Policy Training Conference! Join us Feb. 5-7 as we stand together and educate our members of Congress on the importance of our magnet schools. There is no one better to represent our community than those that are in it every day. Your presence in Washington, D.C., speaks for the students, the parents, fellow educators, administrators and more on the impact of the “original” school choice: MAGNETS.

Speakers include:
  • Former Secretary of Education John King keynoting On Equity in Education.
  • Dr. Anna Hinton and Jennifer Todd from the Department of Education.
  • Maree Sneed from Hogan Lovells providing an update on the legal landscape.
