The 100th annual Maine School Superintendents’ Conference is upon us. It starts Monday at the Senator Inn in Augusta.
That means it’s time to start thinking about this year’s theme: transformation.
Is your school in the midst of a comprehensive reform effort? Why have you undertaken it? What challenges have you run into so far? How will you know your effort has been successful? What support could the Department of Education offer?
Be prepared to share your tales of transformation and learn from others’ when we gather for two days that I believe will be pivotal in setting Maine schools on a path of retooling for a new age in education.
