8:15 AM | School Board Member Engagement & Collaboration

Dr. S. Dallas Dance, Superintendent, Baltimore County Public Schools, MD
Kevin Kamenetz, Baltimore County Executive, MD

All institutions, organizations and individuals—governing boards, school staff, parents, students, community groups, businesses, local, state and federal leaders, and others—must accept a collective responsibility for the critical role they play in ensuring that all students succeed. During this session, we will explore a case study of effective collaboration and share best practices that can be applied to districts and school boards across the Mid-Atlantic.

9:30 AM | Teacher Union Engagement & Collaboration

Dr. Kevin M. Maxwell Superintendent, Prince George's County Public Schools, MD
Dr. John Fredericksen, Superintendent, Wicomico County School District, MD

The digital conversion requires tools, professional development and a long-term commitment to teachers and students. As the voice of the teacher, the teacher's union is a critical stakeholder in the success of a district's digital conversion. During this session, we will hear examples of successful collaboration between teacher's unions and school districts in support of their digital transition.

10:45 AM | Spotlight on Innovation: Putting Quality Instruction First

Dr. Aaron Spence, Superintendent of Virginia Beach City Public Schools, VA
Dr. Eric Williams, Superintendent of Loudoun County Public Schools, VA (Virtual)

As districts implement their digital conversions they will require more technology and digital content. However, it's not just about the device. A successful digital transformation is the merging of digital resources and instructional methodologies that when paired together yield the best outcomes for both students and teachers. During this session we'll hear from leaders who led their districts through a conversion while keeping quality instruction at the forefront.
