On Tuesday, Oct. 7 Secretary Duncan and the U.S. Department of Education will welcome a selected group of the nation’s 14,000+ superintendents to Washington, D.C., to attend a summit on digital learning.
This first ever Connected Superintendents’ Summit will provide opportunities for leaders from district, charter, and private schools to share lessons learned with each other and with the Department to help disseminate promising approaches across the nation. Superintendents selected to participate also will be honored for their role in helping lead the transition within their schools.
In preparation for the Summit, the U.S. Department of Education is also inviting district leaders at various levels, including superintendents, assistant superintendents, and CTOs, to participate in a Summit Steering Committee in Washington, D.C., on May 28. This selected group will be asked to share their experiences and will help to shape the Summit agenda.
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 that person for either of these honors. We encourage you to share this simple, one-question nomination form. The first round of nominations will close on May 27.
