AASA Pleased to Support ConnectEd Superintendents' Summit, Scheduled for October

 Permanent link   All Posts

You have two days left to submit your application to participate in the 2014 ConnectEd Superintendents Summit. Focused on transition to digital learning, this day-long summit builds on a smaller-scale summit held earlier this year. The effort, led by USED, is something AASA supports and has helped advance, and we encourage our members to both consider attending and submit an application.

Final nominations are due August 15.

The summit will be held on Tuesday October 7, and will feature a selected group of the nation's 14,000+ superintendents.  It will provide opportunities for superintendents from district, charter, and private schools to share lessons learned with each other and with the Department. The Summit will help disseminate promising approaches across the nation and participating superintendents will pledge to be leaders and mentors in the nationwide transition to digital learning.

On May 28th, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education welcomed more than 30 district superintendents and organizations helping to lead the digital transition from around the country to a Technical Working Group. This first of its kind event was crucial to the department's efforts to engage and build a community of connected educators and learn how to better support districts in their transition to digital learning. Feedback from participants helped shape the agenda for the upcoming Connected Superintendents' Summit. The Department of Education is deeply grateful to all of the Technical Working Group members for their time, engagement, and ideas.

If you are, or know of, a district leader who is doing extraordinary work helping to integrate technology to better personalize learning, please take a moment to nominate them for the Connected Superintendents' Summit. We encourage you to share this simple, one-question nomination form. Nominations will close on August 15, 2014 and finalists will be notified prior to September 1, 2014.
