World Class Summit 2014 - Sign-up for your sessions now!

Peter Noonan
The inaugural Round Rock ISD World Class Summit will bring together more than 250 leaders from every corner of the organization. Professional Learning Communities will be the recurring theme in all sessions whether we are collaborating on leadership, finance, technology, curriculum, accountability, or anything else.
There will be more than 70 sessions offered July 22nd-24th at Stony Point High School. The planning sessions with your assigned Vertical Leadership Team, Ethical Leadership (Finance), What's New with Accountability, and Legal Update are all required, but beyond that you can set your own schedule. You will see that some classes are 90-min, some 50-min, so if you find some down time between classes, feel free to utilize any of the open classroom work areas to make phone calls, plan with your admin team, get caught up on emails, or connect with other leaders from RRISD.

Peter Noonan from Solution Tree and Fairfax City Schools in Virginia will deliver the featured keynote on July 22nd and have an opportunity to lead a work session individually with each Vertical Leadership Team during the Summit.

Be sure to bring your copy of Leaders of Learning. If you have not already received a copy, we will have one available for you at the information table in the mall area. 

Lunch will be sponsored by the Curriculum and Professional Development department on July 22nd in the cafeteria and will feature a specialized menu from new RRISD Executive Chef, Jeff Moll. Lunch will be available for purchase on July 23rd and 24th in the cafeteria. 

Make sure to join us for the second annual Director's Showcase on July 22nd at 12:30 p.m. in the Stony Point Mall area. This will be an opportunity for campus leaders and department leaders to connect, share celebrations, and make plans heading into the 2014-2015 school year. 

Share your learning and comments throughout the Summit using #rrisdpd on Twitter and sharing in the Round Rock ISD Professional Development G+ Community. Be mindful that these are both public spaces and take advantage of sharing the successes of RRISD with the rest of the world. Be sure to sign up for Corey Ryan's session on July 23rd to learn more about utilizing social media.
