As a State Education Agency leader it can be hard to peel yourself away from your day to day and commit to a multi-day meeting. But you’ve cleared your travel, you’ve registered for the Summit and Bootcamp, you’ve booked your hotel and flight to Austin – now its time to figure out your schedule. With four jam packed days and over 75 interesting, engaging, and informative sessions that task can be a little daunting. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

We’ve pulled together a handy SEA Playlist just for you! It’s got a little inspiration, some best practice guidance from the field, and a day and a half of hands-on training to ensure a successful implementation.

It is all too easy to sit in our own SEAs, tick off our to-do lists, and stress over our challenges thinking we’re doing this work alone.  Luckily, that is not true – we have a community behind us and the Ed-Fi Summit is a great opportunity to get out of our offices to share, learn, and problem solve together!

You can view the full agenda and registration information here.

See you in October!
