Each webinar will feature national and local experts who will share research-based strategies designed to meet the educational needs of diverse student populations, their families, and communities. The Summit will provide a collegial and supportive atmosphere for exchanging ideas with district leaders, school and early childhood administrators, teachers, providers, families, community members, and nonprofit partners from school districts throughout the State of Maryland.
