Join NACEP colleagues, policy experts, and education advocates at this unique, impactful, and informative two-day Capitol Hill networking event on April 23-24, 2019. The Washington Policy Seminar provides a very special opportunity to learn about current policy trends, federal work influencing the field, and upcoming legislation affecting concurrent and dual enrollment programs. The seminar will feature presentations, panels, and discussions with key policymakers from DC-based education associations, Federal agencies, Congressional offices, and education advocates, including activities and updates from NACEP's partners in the College in High School Alliance. Don't miss this opportunity to build meaningful connections and gain big-picture insights from individuals and organizations advancing policy that impacts our field.

The event will feature briefings on the latest news in Congress and the U.S. Department of Education and NACEP's work with the College in High School Alliance on policy advocacy. Speakers and panel discussions will include policy experts from other national education organizations, congressional staff, and officials from the U.S. Department of Education.

We will see the following at this year's Washington Policy Seminar:
  • American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) will discuss higher education policy trends at the federal and state levels.
  • The Alliance for Excellent Education will discuss a new research paper
    calling for allowing college-ready high school seniors to take a full year
    of dual enrollment courses.
  • The Learning Policy Institute will address chronic teacher
    shortages in many states, including for dual enrollment.
  • Advance CTE will discuss the implementation of the latest update to the federal career and technical education law, Perkins V.
  • New America will discuss their recent efforts to promote youth apprenticeship, which includes a strong role for dual enrollment.
  • The National Governors Association will discuss the education policy
    priorities of the nation’s 22 new governors and their evolving work in
    secondary, postsecondary, and workforce space.
  • The College in High School Alliance will discuss its state policy framework and recommendations for dual enrollment that will be published this summer.
  • The University of Texas System will share the results of their recent mixed
    methods study of dual enrollment. This study has generated a lot of
    discussion about participation, impact, and outcomes for dual enrollment students.
