Superintendent Leadership Convenings

We began this work back in 2017 with the idea of creating a space for leaders from across the state to come together for a unique professional learning opportunity.  At each convening superintendents will have an opportunity to closely examine the work of their district teams and leverage their efforts for district-wide impact. In addition to the specific work of each team, we seek out inspirational leaders from across the country to stretch participants' professional growth.  As superintendents it is rare to spend time with peers in the “learning zone” to share ideas, frustrations and craft solutions. This leadership cohort provides each participant with practical takeaways to implement in their district as well as inspiration for the journey ahead.
