Call for targeted presentation submissions

We are starting to review more than 150 proposals we received for presentations at DLAC. So far most that we are reviewing are excellent and we are excited to take part in these discussions in Austin! We will be sending out acceptance emails starting in early December, and through early January.

We have also identified a few areas where we are inviting additional proposals to better round out the presentations. If you are in (or interested in) any of these categories, please consider submitting a presentation between Nov 23 and 30.

  • Presenters representing school districts or charter schools located in urban areas
  • Presentation topics related to using online or blended learning to meet goals related to equity and inclusion
  • Posters/infographics as a session type.

We have additional information on our conference agenda and call for proposals pages. On Nov 23 we will re-open the proposals submission pages as well.

As always please email us at with any questions! And follow us on Twitter @theDLAC for more conference updates!
