Now districts enter a period of financial uncertainty. How will school systems adjust to the evaporation of federal aid, and how will they make decisions about what programs, personnel, and other priorities they want to cut back, or continue to invest in? In this webinar, we’ll talks with a panel of experts who work directly with school district leaders what they see ahead, and what other forces – from shifts in enrollment to changes in state and federal budgets – could alter the landscape. The choices districts make have major implications, not just for school systems, but for education companies serving them. Attendees will gain insights on the following: + Key areas of school district budgets where districts are likely to feel particular pressure, and where they more have more spending flexibility; + How school systems are likely to prioritize different academic and non-academic needs, as they adjust to new budget realities; + How other sources of funding – such as non-stimulus federal money – could be used by districts, when emergency aid expires. + What we know through EdWeek Market Brief survey research about how much stimulus aid school districts have left, and how they will respond to its loss. And much more. We’ll also take questions from our audience.

Hackers are waging an unrelenting battle to steal students’ personal information. School districts of all sizes have endured a steady wave of cyberattacks. And a top regulatory agency, the Federal Trade Commission, recently proposed changes to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule that will impact the ways that vendors work with school districts. In this webinar, experts who understand state and federal laws and school district expectations on data privacy will discuss how education companies can act proactively and make sure their policies and platforms are doing the job. We’ll discuss the following:
    • Common mistakes companies make on student data privacy protection and how to avoid them
    • How newly proposed federal rules will affect education companies’ practices in marketing, advertising, data-retention, and other areas
    • The intersection between data privacy and cybersecurity and the rising standards on vendors to take an active role in managing both
    • New developments in state and federal efforts to regulate how children interact with social media.

A small but growing number of school systems have begun using outcomes-based contracts, or agreements that directly tie vendors’ pay to achieving specific performance metrics. So far, those contracts have focused on tutoring, but there is interest among some school districts in expanding them to other areas of the budget. In this webinar, we talk with school district officials about these agreements, how effective they’ve been so far, and what’s next. Our audience will come away with the following: 
    • An inside look at the metrics that the contracts are establishing for vendors – and for school districts, for quality implementation – and the incentives tied meeting them. 
    • Perspective from school district officials that are using the contracts on why they structured the deals the way they did, and their expectations for using them going forward. 
    • A look at national survey results on how open districts are to using outcomes-based agreements with companies. 
    Join us for great insights and conversation.

    These are dynamic times for school district budgets, and for their prioritization of new areas of spending. The economy is still strong, but worries about the federal “funding cliff” persist. In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial team will take you through the trends we’re seeing districts purchasing, as judged from both our weekly reporting on the content of school district RFPs, and from data we’ve collected from school district officials. Attendees will come away with the following:

    • Analysis from EdWeek Market Brief’s reporters on trends they have seen across hundreds of RFPs released by school districts over the past year, asking for products in curriculum, ed-tech platforms and devices, data management systems, and much more.
    • Insights from our reporting on how school districts are making decisions about future spending, as districts face a September 2024 deadline to commit stimulus funding.
    • A snapshot of our original survey data on which areas districts expect to spend more or less in the next year.

Many education companies count on classroom educators to take up their products, spread the word about those products’ benefits, and become champions when vendors push for district-wide adoption. But how much freedom do teachers actually have to test out digital tools without central office approval? In this webinar, we’ll take a look at survey data that speaks to teachers’ roles in driving ed-tech usage in school systems, and discuss what their level of influence means for vendors trying to create products that will win over classroom educators. Attendees will come away with the following:
    • An analysis of EdWeek Market Brief survey data looking at what level of freedom teachers have in choosing products;
    • Insights on when teachers make product recommendations, who in the school district they speak to about their preferences; and
    • Perspective from a school district official on how their school system set policies for teachers’ testing of ed tech.

In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief and our expert guests will take a look at the condition of education funding as we enter a new school year – and what the landscape looks like for education companies in the market. We’ll examine the overall impact of state and federal revenues flowing into K-12, and what that means for the spending priorities playing out in school systems in the 2023-24 academic year. And we’ll look ahead at what may happen with budgets and revenues beyond this year. The webinar will deliver the following:
    • Insights from two of the country’s top school funding experts on the condition of K-12 state and local budgets, and where things are headed.
    • A breakdown on how big external forces – including shifts in student enrollment, the state of the economy, and continued inflationary pressures – will shape school district budgets, and potential discretionary spending on classroom and central-office needs.
    • A look at how the coming loss of federal stimulus aid is likely to affect district budgeting over the next few years.

The unraveling of Silicon Valley Bank jolted the universe of education companies who had counted on the institution and had come to regard it as the “bank of innovation,” in the words of one ed-tech leader. What will be the long-term implications of the bank’s implosion on the work of education startup companies, and on investors who seek to help those fledgling businesses grow? What options are left for entrepreneurs looking for reliable and creative financial support? In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief stages a discussion with entrepreneurs and investors on how SVB’s fall changes the landscape for education companies, and for investors. Attendees will come away with valuable insights on the following:
    • Where ed-tech startups will turn for financial support now that SVB is no longer an option
    • How SVB’s undoing fits into a broader slowdown of venture capital investment into K-12 education, and how venture capitalists are expanding their portfolios or retrenching
    • More broadly, what are the prospects for innovation in a market where creative and flexible lending may now be harder to come by?

School districts have seen their budgets swell in recent years because of strong economic growth, robust tax revenues, and a huge amount of federal stimulus funding. But now, many K-12 systems face uncertainty because of declining student enrollments and the end of federal emergency aid. And no one seems sure where the economy is headed. In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief will get a national and local school district perspective on what’s next for school systems, and ultimately for the school companies tasked with delivering products and services in curriculum, assessment, PD, social-emotional learning, and other areas. Webinar attendees will gain the following:
    • Survey results taken from districts on how many of them are experiencing enrollment drops, and how they expect it to affect their budgets
    • Insights on how budgetary pressures could affect district spending, and what they are likely to cut or spare from cuts
    • On-the-ground perspective from district officials on how they’re managing these pressures, and what they will prioritize in future spending.

School systems across the country continue to wrestle with how to help students recover from severe academic setbacks experienced during the pandemic. District administrators and classroom educators have tried to set in motion strategies to accurately assess where students need the most support, and what kinds of interventions, from tutoring to out-of-school support to a revamping of existing lessons, will provide the most help. In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief will take an in-depth look at the barriers school districts face in addressing unfinished learning, and what support they need from education companies delivering curriculum, assessment, PD, data-analysis, and other products. The webinar will offer:
    • An in-depth discussion of the approaches being used by districts to assess students’ academic strengths and weaknesses over the past two years
    • Original survey data collected from K-12 officials by EdWeek Market Brief on which academic subjects/grade levels need the most attention in addressing unfinished learning, the biggest hurdles they see in going about that work, and the assessment models they favor

The Nov. 8 election has potentially huge implications for education policy and practice -- and for the companies delivering curriculum, assessment, PD, ed tech, and other products and services to schools. In this webinar, we’ll talk about what shifts in political power at both the state and federal level will mean for companies trying to figure out the future of school funding, academic recovery, and classroom practice. Our attendees will come away with insights on the following:
    • Whether new state legislative dynamics and shifting economic conditions will change funding prospects for school districts.
    • How key state ballot items in markets like California, Colorado, Massachusetts, and West Virginia will change the funding and policy landscape.
    • How party control of U.S. Congress will affect the money and policy directed to states and districts.
    • How Republican candidates’ pledges to further restrict lessons on race and general will shape expectations for district curriculum.

It’s one of the biggest complaints that school districts have of education companies: They sell an educational product, and then fail to follow up by making sure it’s implemented correctly. Vendors also become frustrated when districts aren’t using products the way that they’re designed to be used. You’ll also receive critical results from original EdWeek Market Brief survey data on what districts expect from companies in implementing their programs. *The original version of this webinar included survey data that was preliminary, not final.

Many organizations in the K-12 market like the idea of building an evidence or research base for their products, to show district buyers they’re improving outcomes in schools. But they often aren’t sure how to go about that research–and in trying, they may make mistakes that waste time and money. EdWeek Market Brief will be joined by a pair of researchers who work directly with companies on this process. We’ll talk about the standards set by the product-evaluation program they direct–Evidence for ESSA (The Every Student Succeeds Act)–how their program is evolving, and what advice they give to education companies trying to conduct research that matters to school districts.

Many education companies have scrambled to deliver products in curriculum, professional development, assessment, technology, and other areas that meet those schools’ needs. In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief will lead a discussion on the key demands of vendors that have emerged from these schools, how their needs have changed during the pandemic, and what’s ahead as they try to emerge from COVID-19. Attendees will come away with the following:
    • New insights from ISC Research – which studies international private schools -- about key purchasing priorities in the sector, and which school officials make buying decisions;
    • The perspective of company officials who have worked in international schools on how to establish relationships with them, and mistakes to avoid; and
    • How regulatory and policy changes in key markets – like China – have affected international schools and vendors’ ability to work with them.

But K-12 officials and companies see signs that the pandemic has brought lasting changes to the expectations that districts have for products, and for the companies serving them. In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief brings together education company executives and district officials for a focused discussion of how schools’ experiences with remote learning, and new forms of instruction and product support may have permanently altered the market. Attendees to this webinar will come away with:
    • Original EdWeek Market Brief survey results from district officials about what kinds of products they see becoming more essential, in the post-pandemic school environment.
    • Insights on what kinds of products district are demand this fall – for many districts, the first full semester of in-person learning.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced a sudden retreat from districts being willing and able to meet with companies in-person – for professional development sessions, on-site school visits, pilots of products, and face-to-face conferences. How close are school districts to returning to pre-pandemic norms? In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief will break down recent survey data collected from K-12 officials about their appetite for meeting with companies, now, at the start of this school year, and a year from now. Join us to learn about the following:
    • Which types of in-person meetings are moving forward, and which ones are still a no-go;
    • How differences in district policy vary by size of the school district, region of the country, and other factors;
    • Data on how companies’ plans to send staff to in-person events compares with district plan;
    • Insights on EdWeek Market Brief’s reporting and data about the instructional model (fully in-person, vs. hybrid) that districts intend to follow in the fall, and how that could impact company practices.

The American Rescue Plan, signed into law by President Biden last month, provides historic amounts of emergency financial relief to schools – roughly $130 billion, which school districts are expected to spend over the next three years. How are districts going to make use of this aid to address learning loss, priorities in professional development, curriculum, classroom assessment, technology, social-emotional learning, and other areas? This webinar will look at what the stimulus will mean for education companies working in school districts, and what K-12 officials will expect from those vendors. We will discuss and shed light on:
    • The results of a nationally representative survey of district officials on how they expect to spend the new stimulus funding
    • Additional EdWeek Market Brief original research on districts’ specific preferences for addressing learning loss – a core element of the federal aid – over the coming year
    • Insights from federal policy experts and district officials on rules on how the aid can be spent, and how the money is likely to be used by schools
    • And more…

Many school district officials have said they’re wary of receiving over-the-top sales pitches as they scramble to keep up with their many obligations during COVID-19. At the same time, EdWeek Market Brief’s research shows that many school officials are proactively reaching out to companies in search of products that will help them navigate remote, hybrid, and in-person learning. In this environment, what does an effective sales pitch look like—and what are the kinds of messages and outreach that companies should avoid? In this webinar, attendees will come away with the following:
    • Insights on what districts want from their FIRST meeting with a company during COVID, drawing from EdWeek Market Brief surveys of K-12 officials;
    • Intel on how districts pare down the list of companies they’re considering hiring
    • Data on what kinds of companies districts are turning to for the first time during the pandemic;
    • Information on how much time districts spend researching new education companies;
    • District perspective on the messages K-12 officials respond to, and what they reject
    • And more…
    Our guests will also take questions from our audience. We’re looking forward to the conversation. Image Credit: Getty

Attendees will come away with insights on the following:
    • The device-buying and other tech upgrades districts have made since the spring
    • What portion of districts are choosing remote, in-person, or hybrid learning
    • What districts have said their biggest remote learning challenges are this fall

The coronavirus is fueling major concerns about the social-emotional learning needs of the nation’s students, as they’ve returned to schools immersed in unfamiliar approaches to remote or hybrid learning. To find out what role districts are counting on education companies to play, EdWeek Market Brief fielded a nationally representative survey of district administrators and school principals around the country on what kind of products they most need to help SEL during this critical time. In this quarterly briefing, we’ll break down the survey results, looking at the following key questions:
    • What specific features districts want in SEL products?
    • What factors lead districts to renew contracts with SEL providers?
    • Which district officials make decisions about buying SEL products?
    • How do districts “assess” students’ SEL status or well-being
    • And more….

As more school districts commit to using remote-only learning this fall or to hybrid learning models what kinds of professional development will their teachers and other staff need from companies? In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief will take an in-depth look at the PD that districts are asking for, and how they want that professional support delivered in the form of on-demand resources, pre-scheduled help, coaching, professional learning communities, and other modes. Specifically, this webinar will delve into:
    • The results of a new, nationwide EdWeek Market Brief survey of district officials on their most pressing PD needs during COVID
    • Findings from that same survey on districts’ preferred PD delivery methods during the remote-learning era
    • New research on when districts plan to purchase PD during the coming academic year
    We’ll also hear from a school district administrator about how to interpret the data, where company support for educators during COVID is hitting the mark, and where it’s falling short. And as always, we’ll take questions from our audience. Image Credit: Getty

In this quarterly briefing, EdWeek Market Brief Publisher Maurice Bakley and Managing Editor Sean Cavanagh will break down the results of two exclusive surveys of education businesses conducted by EdWeek Market Brief in April and July. For business leaders, investors and others who are interested in the “state of the industry”, please join us as we discuss a variety of insights around the health and prognosis for K-12 Ed Businesses. Among the survey topics we will address:
    • How the coronavirus has affected companies’ current sales, near-term revenue expectations, spending plans and staffing across a variety of departments
    • What pricing strategies companies have chosen, how long they will be running those strategies
    • Companies’ timelines and success for converting district buyers from free materials during COVID to paid offerings
    • The biggest barriers vendors have faced in connecting with districts — and how they’re breaking through
    • What role federal programs like PPP have played for Education Businesses
    • And more…
    We look forward to sharing these survey responses from company representatives – many of them CEOs, VPs, and directors – whose businesses specifically serve the K-12 market and placing them in context with the reporting we have done on these issues on EdWeek Market Brief. Additionally there will be time for Q&A from our live audience. Note: Market Brief members will also receive access to an expanded data deck of the results for further exploration after the event.

In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial team will present new data and analysis from school districts on what parents – in their new roles as at-home instructors – need from companies in the COVID-19 era. We’ll draw from original surveys of district officials in which they were asked about their interactions with families, and the kinds of support and academic resources parents desperately need now. We’ll also break down EdWeek Market Brief’s recent reporting and research on where schools are on the path to reopening, and what kinds of help districts say they need in specific area, as they cautiously set plans to bring teachers and students back. EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial team will specifically present survey data on the following topics:
    1. What product features and support do parents – who teachers need to engage in students’ learning – need from companies?
    2. Updated survey results on districts’ biggest purchasing priorities for the remainder of this school year – and next.
    3. Districts’ biggest purchasing needs in curriculum, as they plan for school reopenings; and
    4. A look at district officials’ early thinking about how they might attempt to create learning environments for reopened schools.
    This webinar is the fifth in EdWeek Market Brief’s COVID-19 briefing series. Our editorial team will take your questions about our research and our reporting on where things stand and states and districts, and where things are headed for K-12 systems and the companies tasked with meeting their most pressing needs.

WEBINAR PROGRAM In this webinar, EdWeek Market Brief brings you the new results from national survey questions we’ve put to district officials looking at how their expectations of companies – and of their own classroom instruction – have changed during COVID-19. We’ll also hear directly from a pair of district administrators on the front lines about the support they need from vendors during this crisis. EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial team will present original survey data on:
    1. How often district officials say they’re reaching out to new companies amid the coronavirus;
    2. What those district officials need to hear from vendors to form a long-term relationship;
    3. Districts’ anticipated assessment needs, as they tentatively plan to return teachers and students to schools; and
    4. How district expectations for grading, instruction, and student engagement have changed in the new environment.
    We’ll also break down how education companies need to think about shifting from free products they’ve offered during COVID-19 to paid models. In addition, our editorial team will be joined by a pair of district officials who will talk about what they want from companies: Scott Muri, the superintendent of the 33,000-student Ector County Independent School District, in Texas, and Steven Langford, the chief information officer at the 41,000-student Beaverton, Ore., schools. Muri and Langford will take questions about what they’re experiencing, and our editorial team will take questions about our new data, and what schools are going through during COVID-19.

In this briefing – the third in our COVID-19 intel webinar series – our editorial team and invited guests will look at how companies across the K-12 market are rethinking their sales and marketing, customer success, and in some cases, existing products to meet school districts’ changing demands. We’ll unveil new findings from an EdWeek Market Brief survey of district administrators across the country, which provides data about the specific changes in spending K-12 officials expect to make in the CURRENT year’s budget and the COMING year’s budget as a result of COVID-19. We’ll also release new survey results how district officials are learning about new products and services in today’s chaotic environment – and what kind of product and implementation support they expect from vendors. Finally, EdWeek Market Brief’s editorial staff will be joined by two guests: BrainPOP CEO Scott Kirkpatrick, and Rob Bixler, the associate superintendent for curriculum and digital learning for the 212,000-student Orange County (Fla.) Public Schools. Image Credit: Getty

In this briefing – the second in a new series by EdWeek Market Brief during the coronavirus outbreak – our editorial team breaks down what they’re learning from school district officials and companies scrambling to respond to schools’ biggest needs, intel gathered through exclusive research and original reporting. We will look at the results of an EdWeek Market Brief survey of district officials’ purchasing priorities during the crisis. We will also explore best practices and strategies that companies can take from fellow vendors who have been working in the homeschool and online markets, and how they can be applied to the new, remote-learning reality. Finally we’ll offer insights on districts’ new experimentation with online learning, and where they need the most help. And we’ll be taking questions, so have yours ready.

Many education providers in the market today run “ambassador programs,” in which teachers advocate for their products, help improve product features, and lend the companies credibility among schools in the K-12 market. But ambassador programs also create risks if they’re not managed properly. The Federal Trade Commission, for instance, recently warned social media influencers—including educators—that they need to disclose that they’ve received freebies to promote products, making their connections to companies clear in their posts. In this webinar, we break down the rationale for why education companies arrange ambassador programs, how they structure the programs, and how they run them in both ethical and effective ways.

Many school districts closely evaluate “usage” reports on ed-tech products, to judge whether those tools are having an impact, and to make sure the district is getting what it’s paying for. How can ed-tech companies work with districts up front, to make sure that usage of a product is strong? And how can companies work with districts to improve upon their performance, if a report says take-up of a product is weak? In this webinar, we’ll dive into strategies companies can use to help themselves and the district clients they serve. [Image credit: Getty]

A key requirement in the federal Every Student Succeeds Act says that vendors must show that their products and strategies focused on school interventions are backed by evidence—and it’s already having an impact. Some districts are questioning or scrapping longtime contracts with K-12 companies. And education vendors are scrambling to make it on the lists of evidence-backed companies created by states, which wield great power in the process. In this webinar, we’ll break down what companies need to know about the evidence standards set by states, how school districts are using them, and how vendors must adjust or risk getting rejected by K-12 district clients.
