Rising Above the Chaos

Staying Grounded, Responsive and Inspired
The Schools of The Future Conference is transcending time and space in 2020! The change of format lends itself well to creativity and innovation, while also allowing for more flexible program options. In considering the reimagined conference, our annual Leading Schools Of The Future Summit will be embedded into the 2-day SOTF conference to be held on October 29 and 30. Attendees who sign up for the summit will be able to access additional content and participate in multiple tracks, both features that are not possible with an in-person event.

Engage in strategies that support:

  • Taking a pause and reflecting
  • Learning from and with each other to leverage our experiences
  • Persevering through dynamic times
  • Maintaining connections with each other and our communities

Ticket Price - $30 and can be purchased as an add on to the SOTF Conference
