About The Program

The RTM 2024 West Education Congress is a flagship gathering of educational leaders dedicated to advancing K-12 education. From September 22nd to 24th, this congress brings together 75 Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Chiefs, and Director level leaders within general academics from across the nation for an enlightening exchange of insights and strategies.
Under the overarching theme ‘Bridging the Gap: Innovations, Equity, and Sustainability in K-12 Education,’ our congress dives deep into the pivotal challenges and opportunities shaping the educational landscape today. We tackle critical issues such as the convergence of AI, K12 education, and technology, digital equity and inclusion, fostering student and staff wellbeing, and implementing effective recruitment and retention strategies for educators.
Join us as we explore actionable strategies and foster collaborative approaches to address these pressing issues. Together, we will navigate dilemmas, build consensus, and pursue clarity in our shared mission to ensure equitable, sustainable, and innovative education for all students. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with fellow leaders, exchange best practices, and shape the future of K-12 education. We eagerly anticipate your participation in this transformative congress, where ideas converge, solutions emerge, and meaningful change unfolds.

Delegate Testimonials

Accelerated Learning
Clint Independent School District, TX

I had an incredible experience at the RTM conference. The sessions were not only engaging but also highly relevant to the work I am currently doing as an educator. The AI sessions, in particular, were a game-changer, providing valuable insights that significantly increased my understanding of how AI can be integrated into the classroom.

Moreover, the opportunity to network with other educators was a wonderful aspect of the event. I had the chance to connect with like-minded professionals, exchange ideas, and build meaningful relationships that I believe will benefit my educational journey in the long run. Overall, it was an enriching and valuable experience that has left a lasting impact on me as an educator.
