The Future Ready Schools initiative is a national effort to support digital learning opportunities by equipping district leaders with knowledge, action plans, and metrics to measure progress in preparing students for success. Back in October, the U.S. Department of Education encouraged superintendents and district leaders across America to pledge their commitment “to work with educators, families, and community members to make all schools in their districts Future Ready.” More than 1,300 superintendents signed the pledge so far and the next step is to put those pledges into action by attending one of twelve regional summits. District teams that attend the summits will come away with a concrete plan of action for creating a digitally connected school district.

We’re thrilled to be a coalition partner in this effort. We will be leading summit sessions on how to ensure you have a network that can support digital learning. Stay tuned for more information on the content of our sessions in the coming weeks as we gear up for the first summit in February. In the meantime, check out our Network Essentials for Superintendents guide, an action-oriented guide for district leaders to lead and manage successful network upgrades.
