It's clear that the president's economic stimulus will not be a silver bullet for the education-budget woes of California and other Western states. As a district leader, you not only need to know the ins and outs of the stimulus legislation, you need to find ways to identify and maximize other, less-well-known funding sources.
That’s why you should attend “Powering through the Recession: Strategies for District Leaders to Keep Achievement on Track,” the elite Education Week Leadership Forum being held on May 15, 2009 in Newport Beach, CA.
Reserve your spot today and take advantage of recession-buster savings. You get 40% off ($200!) the on-site rate if you register by April 20th!

- Marguerite Roza, Research Associate Professor, College of Education, University of Washington
- James R. Carlson, President, Educator Compensation Institute
- Lawrence O. Picus, Professor, Rossier School of Education, University of Southern California
