We invite you to join us for the annual School Leadership Summit, held online, and this year focused on the pillars of the U.S. Department of Education’s Future Ready Pledge. CUE is proud to be a premier partner in the event, co-produced by our partners, TICAL and Learning Revolution.

The Pledge is a commitment by district leaders to work with educators, families, and community members to make all schools in their districts Future Ready: setting a vision and creating the environment where educators and students access the tools, content, and expertise necessary to thrive in a connected world.

This is a great program with great speakers, and at no cost. All are encouraged to register in order to attend or watch the recordings: http://www.FutureReady.education.

The free event will be held July 30/31 at the Hearst Castle Visitor Center, arranged through a special partnership with California State Parks. The event begins at 11am on July 30 and concludes at 3pm on July 31. Thursday, July 30, will feature a gala evening reception on the grounds at Hearst Castle.

AUGUST 5-6: FUTURE READY SCHOOLS SUMMIT – Orange County Department of Education, Costa Mesa

Future Ready SchoolsSuperintendents may register themselves and their leadership teams to attend the Future Ready Summit to be held Aug. 5-6 at the Orange County Department of Education. The district leadership team should consist of up to four colleagues including the superintendent. The additional teammates should be in roles of responsibility that include technology, curriculum, and/or professional learning. It is also suggested that district leaders consider including a school principal on the team, or plan ways of gathering the school based perspective consistently. Please note that the superintendent is required to attend (no substitutions) and the entire team must commit to attending the full summit.

It is the last of the thirteen face to face Summits produced by the Future Ready Initiative, and is of course FREE to attend.
