On Monday, Sept. 20, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona will launch the “Return to School Road Trip”—a bus tour to showcase students and communities safely returning to in-person learning—with several events in Wisconsin. First, Secretary Cardona will visit Eau Claire for a tour of Locust Lane Elementary School and a Return to School Pep Rally.
Later in the day, he will visit University of Wisconsin–Madison, for a tour and a visit to their Public Service Fair that provides students of all majors the opportunity to connect with local, state and national nonprofit agencies. Secretary Cardona will also meet with Latinx students, and students who are part of their special education teaching program.
Throughout the bus tour week—Sept. 20-24—Secretary Cardona, Deputy Secretary Cindy Marten, and local school leaders will join students, parents, educators, and school communities for events that highlight schools and communities that have safely welcomed students back to in-person learning.
