Calling All District Leaders!
The Need for Systemic Planning to Address Higher Standards

Thursday, November 15, 2012
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (ET)
Ryan Imbriale, Principal, Patapsco High School (Baltimore County Public Schools)

As states have rightly moved to require that all students be college and career ready, school district leaders must now make far-reaching decisions that will affect the next decade of education in the United States. Partnering with other organizations, the Alliance for Excellent Education (the Alliance) seeks to provide education leaders in states and school districts with tools to make good decisions about technology aligned with the goals and vision for their students.

Please join the Alliance on Thursday, November 15 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (ET), for a webinar discussion on the need for states and districts to develop plans that incorporate the use of technology in school improvement efforts, specifically as they implement college- and career-ready standards for all students; use online assessments to gauge comprehension and learning; integrate new teacher evaluations; deal with shrinking budgets; and address the effects of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act waivers.

Make your plans today! State and district leaders are encouraged to view and participate in this important webinar discussion of the tools and resources district leaders will need to address technology’s role in the successful implementation of these higher standards in K–12 public schools.
