The A4L Community conducts the majority of its day-to-day work online via virtual meetings and webinars.  In addition, there are many face-to-face opportunities across the globe, including training, Annual Meetings and Community Days.

In-person meetings

Privacy & Interoperability Symposium

Chicago, IL

The Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community is proud to host its 2nd Annual Privacy & Interoperability Symposium providing two days of “tactical” data interoperability (via SIF Specifications) and privacy (via the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC)) conversations highlighting real-world work and successful, challenging case studies.  Increased interoperability without the inclusion of privacy requirements equals increased RISK.  Both data sharing and privacy parameters must be identified and communicated.  Addressing both makes the A4L Community, and its partners, unique. 

Audience:  This event will be of interest to any/all School District, State Leaders and marketplace providers committed to data privacy and data exchange.

'Showcase' webinars

We are delighted to be bringing the Vendor ‘Showcase’ webinars back for 2022.  These webinars aim to provide you with an opportunity to find out more about our members and their commitment to data management and data privacy.

Project Teams

The work of the volunteer Community is done by open invites to Project Teams.  Find out what is being worked on now and get involved…. should you be in them?
