MISSION CRITICAL: Preparing District Teams to Support the Digital Transition is a full-year program offered by the CCRESA in partnership with the Friday Institute. The first of five sessions was held on September 22nd. Fifteen districts sent teams composed of high level decision-makers. Teams spent much of the first day discussing leadership issues around student learning, with a focus on how technology can enhance the learning environment and opportunities for students. The next session, on October 30th, will focus on C&I and professional development issues. in the meantime, the Friday Institute facilitators have asked district teams to meet at their sites to continue the discussion and planning that began on September 22nd.
