In the public education arena, September is a whirlwind
month. School districts are fully immersed in educational learning; students
fully understand school protocol, routines and expectations; school sports are
well underway; and parent and community organizations are enthusiastically
pursuing activities in support of their local schools.
September is also the month FADSS holds its Fall Leadership
Conference, bringing together Florida’s 67 district school superintendents for networking,
professional development and sharing of best practices and innovative ideas in
education. The conference focused on academic achievement, understanding the #OpportunityMyth, and strategies and
success in tackling the Opportunity Gap in Florida school districts.
A key session highlighted the Districts for Impact initiative, a partnership between Impact Florida and FADSS, which focuses on
sharing and promoting promising instructional leadership practices across
districts through a peer-to-peer learning community. The program was created to help education
leaders share and learn about high-impact teaching practices that are bridging
the opportunity gap and improving outcomes for all students. I invite you to learn about this powerful and impactful initiative HERE.
I would also like to thank the companies that supported the Fall
Conference through participation in FADSS Business Partner Program &
Business Partner Showcase. A full list of companies can be found on our Corporate Sponsorship Page.
