Large group forums and seminars are collegial conversation amongst professionals, with a lot of ideas sharing, with some wisdom, pointed questions to kind of lead the conversation.”

Small network groups are a chance to share with each other some of our biggest challenges and get the feedback we need in real-time.”

“Coming together in-person for the Retreat is so important, because we cannot do this job alone, especially during these challenging times. We need meaningful connections with other Superintendents.”

Upcoming Events

April: Legislative Overview Seminar

In April the Alliance heard from David Osborne, NCEE Associate Director for Professional Learning, and Nathan Driskell, NCEE Associate Director for Policy Analysis and Development, as they gave an overview and update of the current legislative landscape in education in the United States.


May: Large Group Forum with Dr. Josh Glazer

On May 17th Dr. Josh Glazer from The George Washington University Graduate School of Education and Human Development will facilitate a discussion centered on using the current disruption as a lever for change. He will push Alliance participants to challenge conventional thinking through trying to make the case that there is a great power in doing things with a shared set of tools, and a shared vision of what good teaching and learning looks like.


June: Retreat in Washington DC

From June 23-25, superintendents from across the country will gather together in Washington, DC for our inaugural in-person Alliance Retreat. This intimate gathering of superintendents promises to be the perfect setting for taking stock of the past two school years and fine tuning your planning for the 2022-23 school year.
