About The Program

Welcome to the 2024 Summer K-12 Leadership Symposium, a leading K-12 Education and Technology Conference taking place in Dallas. Engage with thought leaders, educators, and technology experts as we explore the most crucial topics shaping the educational landscape today. From digital literacy, social and emotional learning, to AI integration and inclusive education, this symposium is a vital platform for discovering actionable insights, sharing best practices, and collectively addressing the pressing challenges that define the future of K-12 education. Attendees will have the opportunity to enhance their leadership capabilities, fostering a community of educational leaders ready to navigate the evolving needs of our educational ecosystem. Don’t miss the chance to be part of this dynamic exchange, where ideas converge, solutions emerge, and leadership skills are honed for the benefit of K-12 education.

Topics Of Discussion

Across the nation, districts are working to navigate a myriad of curriculum and instructional challenges. This session will focus on a blueprint that outlines how to work through these challenges while still maintaining focus on district goals and outcomes.

This presentation delves into the exciting potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in education. Discover the latest advancements in AI technologies and learn how they can be used to revolutionize teaching and learning while also exploring the ethical and implementation challenges that must be addressed along the way.

Data Governance can be quite the beast when considered all at one time. In this session, we will outline how our data governance expectations are developed for, communicated to, and utilized by all stakeholders in the district. We focus on establishing the right technology, people, and processes necessary to yield integrity, privacy, and security of the data in our charge. Our “one bite at a time” approach is off to a good start.
