AASA National Conference on Education 

Nashville, TN
February 14, 2018, 1–5 p.m.

The most transformative school systems in the country embrace a common vision for 21st century education. Many districts have developed this vision by engaging their communities to co-create a shared Profile or Portrait of a Graduate, describing what all students should know and be able to do to become lifelong learners and contributors in an ever-changing world. Join Battelle for Kids and EdLeader21 for a pre-conference workshop, Using a Profile of a Graduate to Become a 21st Century District. During this interactive session, superintendents and their teams will come together to begin to develop: 

  • A Portrait of a Graduate for their district; 
  • A community engagement strategy for their newly created Portrait of a Graduate; and 
  • A vision roadmap for implementation, including key shifts in curriculum and instruction, professional development, and assessment. 

February 16, 2018, 12:45–1:45 p.m.

Join BFK’s Emily Douglas and AASPA's Kelly Coash-Johnson for a round table discussion, Building the Capacity of Human Capital Leaders in Education at table #13 in the NCE Marketplace!
