School Improvement Innovation Summit


School Improvement Innovation Summit
July 8-9, 2013
The Little America Hotel
Salt Lake City, UT

I am excited for the opportunity to participate in this summit...Our district will be implementing PD360 this year...It seems to be an effective way to deliver effective professional development to teachers and staff that is differentiated and aligned to the individual needs of the teacher.
There are two sessions that I especially want to attend :

Only the Best: Success for Every Student and Teacher
Tammy Davis, Principal, Central Elementary, Artesia, New Mexico. She will be sharing the strategies that her school uses to have every student on grade-level by second-grade, and far advanced by the time they leave...

Effective Online PD: The Key to Professional Learning
Sonja Alexander and Aleigha Henderson-Rosser, from the Learning Centric will be talking about how DeKalb County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia created powerful online professional development that serves the individual and collective needs of all the system's educators.

I was contacted by a representative from this site who asked me to post a link after reviewing the site I think it is an excellent resource for all things Common Core.
