There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic changed the face of education. School district leaders looked to new and innovative ways to stay connected with staff, students, parents and their communities. Technology was rapidly implemented in ways never before used on such a large scale. As we begin to navigate “what’s next” in K-12 education, strategies for scaling and sustaining effective technology innovations and continuing to budget for them on a yearly basis are more essential than ever. To succeed, this effort requires school leaders to develop organizational culture and practices that enable risk taking and support the efforts around bringing to scale what works. Budgets must also be developed in ways that sustain those innovations.
In this edWebinar, three leading-edge superintendents share how they are leading innovation by creating and supporting practices that allow successful innovations to grow and be sustained. Strategies for budgeting for innovation will also be discussed.
This edWebinar is of high value to superintendents, preK-12 school and district leaders, aspiring school leaders, chief technology officers, and other information technology education leaders. Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panelists during the live broadcast.
