2014 Superintendents Conference


Join superintendents and BOCES leaders from around the state to learn about critical issues facing district leaders in Colorado's evolving public education environment. Share, learn and network with other superintendent-level and BOCES leaders that understand the challenges you grapple with on a daily basis. This year's focus will be on empowering leaders to advocate, communicate and engage their communities to influence the future of public education in Colorado.

Discussions will revolve around how to increase school leaders ability to influence the legislative process. Hear from the CASE Legislative Committee, receive communication and legislative toolkits and learn about pending elections and upcoming legislative issues, such as Testing and Data Privacy. Preliminary results from the State of the Superintendency survey will be presented as well as an interactive discussion with CDE on current issues and topics.
