INVITE: U.S. Department of Education, OPEN Briefing, Wednesday, April 10

The U.S. Department of Education will hold a briefing on the President's Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Request Wednesday, April 10, starting at 1:30 PM in the Department Auditorium (400 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC, 20202).  Reservations are not required.

For security purposes, attendees are reminded to bring a photo ID and a business card.  As in previous years, attendees are requested to enter the Department on the C Street side of the building (across from the McDonald’s), go through the magnetometers, and show their photo ID to the guards.  However, instead of signing-in at the Front Desk, attendees will be directed to the auditorium's rear doors, where they will be asked to submit a business card OR record their name, organization, and contact information on a sign-in sheet. 

At this point, the budget book and briefing materials will be distributed.

If you are unable to attend in person, we will be live streaming the briefing.  To watch the briefing, go to  No registration is required.   

We hope you can join us – either in person or online – on Wednesday!
