Join your colleagues from the Small City School District Association for a discussion on preparing 21st Century
students for college and careers.   

College and Career Readiness:  Combining actionable data with individualized instruction to propel each and
every student to their highest potential. You have massive amounts of data on how your district is performing, but most districts struggle to decipher which indicators will provide them insight and actionable data to ensure that every student leaves with the skills to be successful in college and career.  Would you like to learn how the most innovative schools are using precise and timely data to differentiate instruction and help every student achieve mastery?

During an open-floor discussion, hear from your colleagues on how they identify needs and individualize instruction for every student.  Hear how the three assessment categories (formative, interim, and summative) paint a picture of how well-prepared your students are for college and career.  Learn how that data can be used to identify where learning gaps exist and how counselors and teachers can effectively leverage technology to differentiate instruction to meet each individual student's learning needs.

Walk away with concrete examples and success stories from your peers and your partners, so that your students
walk across the stage to the path of success.
