This year’s ECTAC Conference was abuzz with conversation as educators from across Florida celebrated and learned from other schools who are exceeding expectations. This conference provides the opportunity for schools that are striving for higher levels of achievement to collaborate in the sharing of best practices and ideas.  (ECTAC provides technical assistance to a collaborative network of school districts regarding selective programs contained in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) reauthorized as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).)

Special congratulations are extended to Fairlawn Elementary School and West Gate K-8 School for their inspiring approach to school-wide collaboration and academic support.
