The Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community and The Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) are formally coordinating their work to align the adoption of secure, trusted, free and open data standards and methods across the P-20W domain. 

Our chosen theme for our inaugural Summit “Advancing Education through Digital Transformation: Collaborating for Success” reflects the core values and objectives of both A4L and PESC. Jointly, we believe that by fostering collaboration and leveraging technology, we can unlock new opportunities to enhance educational experiences, streamline processes, and empower learners and educators alike.

Join us at this landmark conference as we forge new pathways for digital transformation in education, ensuring access, equity, and excellence for the pK20W+ sector. Together, we can collaboratively shape the future of data standards in education and make a lasting impact on the lives of students, educators, and educational institutions worldwide.
