Greetings from CLASS Coalition, where we’re excited to update you on several initiatives that support our mission and expand opportunities for students of all backgrounds.

We recently co-hosted a webinar with NCSSS, where Apple talked about its Everyone Can Code program. Learn more about the program.

Your Support Helps Propel CLASS – and Our Students – Forward

CLASS is committed to increasing opportunities and access to education for high-achieving, low-income students and students of all backgrounds, and to helping you do the same. You have likely seen recent communications from CLASS about our new membership dues, an annual $350 fee that will help us continue to provide opportunities for students across the country.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with you and advancing opportunities for your teachers, students and administrators. Whether through our annual “Closing the Excellence Gap” summit, webinar series, online platform under development to create a school-to-workforce pipeline, leadership and educational resources, knowledge sharing capabilities and so much more – we work to provide you with the tools you need to create the country’s foremost learning environments and help your students succeed. We value your support and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Date Changed for Close the Excellence Gap Summit 

Due to popular demand, we will host our annual summit in February 2018.

Unfortunately, we will not join the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) as a joint conference in July.
