Located in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah, this year’s National Title I Conference (February 5-8) is sure to be a hit with the thousands of Title I educators attending professional development sessions and presentations. The 2015 National Title I Conference theme is Leading With Wonder, which was inspired by comments from President Lyndon B. Johnson at the signing of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Several activities at this year’s National Title I Conference will commemorate the 50th anniversary of this historic legislation and the creation of Title I.
