This eCademy webinar will review the use of apprenticeships as a workforce and business development strategy. Apprenticeship programs can help address skills gaps and meet the labor needs of employers. Workers earn money while receiving on-the-job training in high-skilled occupations. Businesses are able to hire the skilled labor needed to be successful. Displaced workers and youth are provided a career pathway for high-skilled, in-demand occupations. Experts will provide state examples of using structured apprenticeships to create jobs and promote successful business enterprises.

In April, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to continue hearing litigation related to the Obama administration’s Clean Water Rule. The litigation deals with whether a federal district court or a federal court of appeals has jurisdiction to rule whether the Waters of the United States, or WOTUS, definitional rule violates the Clean Water Act. The decision came shortly after the Trump administration issued an executive order calling for the “rescinding or revising” of the rule. This eCademy webinar will provide an overview of all the issues in play and examine what’s at stake for the states.

International trade continues to be a priority issue for the Trump administration. On the first official day of his presidency, President Donald Trump issued a memorandum formally withdrawing the United States from the recently negotiated Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and stated his desire to renegotiate other trade agreements, including agreements with the top two markets for U.S. exports—Canada and Mexico—through the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. This eCademy webcast will explain what’s next for free trade agreements and trade policy overall, and what it may mean for your state.

State education officials are being given greater control over everything from evaluating teacher performance to setting education standards, thanks to a comprehensive reform bill signed by President Barack Obama in December 2015. The legislation, known as the Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA, reduced the federal government’s role in setting education policy and granted more authority to the states, a move that education officials are hopeful will lead to strides in fixing widening achievement gaps and other issues that have plagued the nation’s public schools.  Federal officials and state leaders will discuss what ESSA  means for states and in the classroom.
