Hope you can join us for Future Ready: What Does This Mean?.

Description: Administrators, teachers and support staff all need to be aligned in their thinking about what it means to be “Future Ready.” Listen to share how their institutions are future ready now. They will discuss the processes put in place that transformed the thinking of all stakeholders to create a future ready mindset and culture. Practical concepts will be shared at all levels to help others learn what it looks like to be “future ready” and to change the culture of a school or district to be aligned in this direction. Speakers will share how their schools and districts believe the future is now!
