The Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center (SSSTA), supported by the Office of Safe and Healthy Students in the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, announces its next Implementation Webinar Series event, “Implementing New Programs—The Impact of Current Practice.” It will be offered twice to accommodate schedules:
- Session 1: Wednesday, May 23, 2012, 4:00 pm − 5:30 pm Eastern Time

Recently, the Department held its first meeting with the Race to the Top grant winners. It was wonderful to help welcome delegates from winning states and start rich conversations about implementing each of their plans.
To be sure, implementation is where the real challenge lies for many of the states. We at the Department understand that making such comprehensive reforms is a monumental task, and so one of our top priorities is to ensure that states have the support and technical assistance they need to make their plans successful.
