Superintendents Technical Working Group

On May 28th, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education welcomed district superintendents and digital leadership from around the country to a Technical Working Group. This first of its kind event was crucial to the Department’s efforts to engage the community of ConnectED educators and learn how to better support districts in their transition to digital learning. Feedback from participants helped shape the agenda for the upcoming White House “ConnectED to the Future” Convening this November. The Department of Education is deeply grateful to all of the the Technical Working Group members for their time, engagement, and ideas.
