What if IT is possible? What is the IT that will push your district’s student learning to the next level? By attending the Leadership Summit, a special event jointly sponsored by ICE and IETL, your district leaders will have the opportunity to explore this question.

Our Leadership Summit day will focus on 21st century leadership, digital transformation, and innovative ways to use social media to promote the positive things happening every day in our schools. Leaders will walk away with action steps that aren’t tied to increases in budgets. Our agenda will include:

  • 21st Century Leadership
  • Digital Transformation
  • Cultivating a Learning Organization
  • Learning Spaces
  • Innovation
  • Telling Your Story

District leaders will register for this special event through the ICE Conference registration system, which will open in early December. Lunch is included, and Leadership Summit participants will receive VIP passes to the Conference Opening in the Expo Hall that will follow immediately after the Leadership Summit.
