The 2019 OELAS Conference will be held December 11-13, 2019 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort in Tucson, Arizona. The conference will provide meaningful professional development opportunities for educators of English learners (ELs) and migrant students, designed to help meet the unique challenges faced in the education of these two special populations of students. There will also be sessions geared toward administrators who support, coach, guide, and assess within English language acquisition and migrant programs in the State of Arizona. Sessions will be presented by both national and local experts, and participants will gain information and skills that can be put to practical use.

A banquet to honor the 2019 Arizona EL award winners will be held on Wednesday evening, December 11, 2019. Award winners will include the 2019 Arizona EL Teacher of the Year and the 2019 Arizona EL Student Success Stories recipients.
