Vision 2015’s fifth annual knowledge-based partnership forum is slated for Wednesday, October 17 at the Clayton Hall Conference Center at the University of Delaware. The event will focus on the key drivers of Race to the Top implementation. These key elements will be demonstrated by Delaware schools and districts that are doing innovative work — and already seeing results!
District leaders, principals, teachers, and others will share their work related to Common Core implementation, parent engagement, data use, personalized learning, as well as other topics.
