Superintendents Technical Working Group

Archived Content: The following page has been archived but still has content that may be valuable to some people.

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 White House “ConnectED to the Future” Convening. The Department of Education is deeply grateful to all of the the Technical Working Group members for their time, engagement, and ideas.
