Tadeo A. De La Hoya Joins Latino Leaders for 12th Annual National Summit on Latino Education


Tadeo A. De La Hoya and nearly 65 other Latino policymakers attended a two-day convening focused on improving student outcomes through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

San Luis, Arizona — Tadeo A. De La Hoya, City of San Luis Interim City Manager and Gadsden Elementary School Board Member, joined the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund, the nation’s preeminent nonprofit organization that facilitates the full participation of Latinos in the American political process, from citizenship to public service, and nearly 65 Latino school board members, higher education trustees, and state legislators from across the country for a convening to discuss the state of Latino education and how the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) can be used to support the growing Latino and English Language Learner (ELL) student population.

The event took place September 9-10, 2016, as part of the organization’s 12th Annual National Summit on the State of Latino Education in Washington, D.C. A major focus of this year’s convening was ESSA (signed into law on December 10, 2015) that shifts the educational oversight of student services and accountability systems from the federal level to the state and local levels.

To ensure Tadeo A. De La Hoya and the other Latino leaders from 15 states across the nation are able to successfully navigate the changes in these policies going forward, the two-day convening included a series of informational panels, workshops and strategy sessions focused on furthering policymakers’ understanding of key changes under ESSA and the various components within the legislation that will set the goals and outcomes for English Language Learners and all students.

“As Latino leaders we are constantly looking for ways to support students by continuing to improve the educational experiences that will enhance student growth and success” said Mr. De La Hoya

As part of the Summit, Tadeo A. De La Hoya and the other Latino leaders had a unique opportunity to hear from leading education experts from the public, private, and non-profit sectors who tackled a range of pressing policy topics on ESSA and the academic needs of ELLs during this time of transition. A full schedule and list of speakers is available on the NALEO Educational Fund website at

This event was made possible through the generous support of Title Sponsors, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and State Farm®.
