Leadership Strategies for Scaling, Sustaining, and Budgeting for Education Technology Innovations

Monday, January 10, 2022 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm EDT
Presented by Dr. Susan Enfield, Superintendent, Highline Public Schools (WA); Dr. Heath Morrison, Superintendent, Montgomery Independent School District (TX); and Mr. Marlon Styles, Superintendent, Middletown City School District (OH)

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic changed the face of education. School district leaders looked to new and innovative ways to stay connected with staff, students, parents and their communities. Technology was rapidly implemented in ways never before used on such a large scale. As we begin to navigate “what’s next” in K-12 education, strategies for scaling and sustaining effective technology innovations and continuing to budget for them on a yearly basis are more essential than ever. To succeed, this effort requires school leaders to develop organizational culture and practices that enable risk taking and support the efforts around bringing to scale what works. Budgets must also be developed in ways that sustain those innovations.

In this edWebinar, three leading-edge superintendents share how they are leading innovation by creating and supporting practices that allow successful innovations to grow and be sustained. Strategies for budgeting for innovation will also be discussed.
