Guidance from Dr. Sylvia Lyles, Director, Office of Academic Improvement Programs U.S. Department of Education :
There will not be a Summer Institute for 21st CCLC programs in 2018, therefore subgrantees are encouraged to register for NAA's National Conference being held in Atlanta from March 18 through 21, 2018. The National AfterSchool Association is dedicated to the development, education and care of children and youth during their out-of-school hours.
Over the years, the organization has provided tremendous support, resources, and expertise to the field, directly impacting the work we do in the 21st CCLC program. I believe the resources and professional learning opportunities that the NAA conference provides are beneficial to the field, and participating at the NAA is an opportunity we should not miss.
In order to ensure lodging at the conference, you are encouraged to book rooms immediately. More information about the conference can be found at https://naaweb.org/convention .
