Dear [Colleague],

I’d like to attend the Ed-Fi Summit & Bootcamp—a national conference focused on education data interoperability. The event takes place in Austin, Texas, from October 9-12, 2018.

As you may know, data interoperability is the seamless, secure, and controlled exchange of data between applications. This could bring significant benefits to our educators and learners by transforming our data architecture.

Attending the Ed-Fi Summit & Bootcamp will provide plenty of benefits, including:

  • Increasing privacy and security of student data
  • Using technology to promote learning
  • Saving teachers’ and administrators’ time
  • Improving the quality of our data
  • Visualizing data to make better decisions
  • Achieving compliance with federal and state data regulations

The Summit is presented by the Ed-Fi Alliance—a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide a 360-degree view of student progress by driving adoption of the Ed-Fi Data Standard. The data standard ensures different data systems can seamlessly connect.

The Ed-Fi Summit is a smart investment—especially with the wealth of content it offers and the caliber of leaders who attend.
