HOPE Conference 2021 (formerly known as the OELAS Conference) will be held December 9-10, 2021 in Tucson, Arizona. OELAS continues its tradition of hosting this in-person conference to provide meaningful professional development opportunities for educators of all students served by Unique Populations at the Arizona Department of Education. This year’s conference also includes our signature event, Arizona Student Success Stories Awards Banquet, where we will honor and celebrate outstanding Arizona students.
The HOPE Conference 2021 theme, Our Students, Their Agency, exemplifies the vision that educating Arizona’s unique populations is a shared responsibility and that equity is at the forefront of the work we ALL do to ensure every student develops a sense of agency, confidence, and determination to give them the competency to choose their path in life.
Participants will enjoy two full days of professional learning engaging with both national and local presenters on topics related to equity, shared responsibility for all students, research-based practices, program implementation and systems for English learners, foster care, homeless and migrant students. Check out our amazing presenter line-up on the Keynote and Featured Speakers link.
