*Important Update on OAFE Programs and Services

OAFE is currently undergoing an exciting transition to redirect our focus for resource development and programs.  In order to better serve our stakeholders and drive critical thinking and dialogue, OAFE is shifting towards a concentration on the development of resources for grades 7-12.  Over the course of the next six months you will see a number of changes to the look and feel of our library of resources and programs we offer.

This transition also includes a shift from our traditional hard copy resource inventory to a solely electronic resource library with all resources being accessible to download for FREE on our website at www.oafe.org.

We will continue to strive so that all educators from grades 1-12 feel welcomed and served when they come to www.oafe.org.   To read more about how this will affect you click here.
