The Delaney House

Unfortunately, we have reached full capacity for this event. Please email to join a waitlist for this event.


Despite decades of research proving the importance of great teachers, little public attention has focused on realistic solutions to make teaching a more sustainable, flexible, attractive profession. It’s time to rethink the role of the teacher. How can schools rethink the "one teacher, one classroom" model? What would it take for the demands of the teaching job to be shared across a team of professionals? Please join us for a community forum where we will raise these questions and gather input from across the education sector including teachers, administrators, and paraprofessionals.
Omni Parker House Hotel, Boston
After two years of virtual gatherings, we are thrilled to announce that our annual Condition of Education in the Commonwealth event will be back at the Omni Parker House this year!

For the past year, we've been working with the MA Early Childhood Funder Collaborative to build an interactive, accessible tool that maps the current ecosystem of supports for young children and their families across the Commonwealth. The early childhood field is complex and hard to understand, which has led to inaction in policy and funding and deeply embedded inequities and systemic barriers for many Massachusetts families.

EdImpact is hosting a workshop series to support districts in maximizing ESSER funds to accelerate learning and drive lasting systemic transformation.

On November 1, 2022 the EdImpact Research Consortium held a virtual policy discussion on the current state of COVID relief funds in Massachusetts schools.

The Delaney House | Holyoke, MA

On June 9, 2022 we hosted a conversation in Holyoke on the state of education in Western Massachusetts. This event put a local focus on the findings of our Condition of Education in the Commonwealth report and brought together members of the business and education communities to discuss supporting educators and planning for the future after the challenges of the past two years.

Addressing unfinished learning must go beyond the academic goals we set for students. After years of isolation, trauma, and inconsistency, students and educators across Massachusetts continue to feel the impact of this tumultuous time on their mental health and wellbeing. Our learning needs have changed and educators are eager to address the social and emotional needs of their students. On March 9th, the Rennie Center and Transforming Education will lead a webinar to help practitioners bridge transformative social-emotional learning strategies into their existing practice that affirm the experiences of students and educators as they continue to grapple with the challenges of this pandemic. 

The past two years have challenged, taxed, and changed our education system like never before. As students and educators enter a third year of living and learning in a pandemic, how can our education system adapt to best support school communities now and in the years to come? 

Join us for a webinar on November 16 to learn some strategies your school or district could use to weave social-emotional learning into every classroom and every lesson. We'll walk you through our resource-filled action guide, which is based on lessons learned from our years working with a network of districts implementing SEL in schools. You'll also hear from experts on recommendations for fostering student voice through SEL and why supporting student agency is critical during this difficult time.
