A Message from FADSS CEO

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.

I am #FLPublicSchoolProud
