Consortium to Serve as National Foundation for Building Personalized Learning Schools and Districts

Alexandria, Va. – Oct. 18, 2017 – School district leaders serving as champions of the personalized learning movement across the country are meeting in Charlotte, N.C., Oct. 18-20, 2017, as part of the AASA Superintendents Personalized Learning Cohort.

“Personalized learning has a major place in our society today, as far as public education is concerned, and it’s imperative that it’s a mainstay throughout our public schools,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “It was a two years ago when AASA hosted its inaugural Personalized Learning Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am encouraged by the significant attempts being made to change the system of education as we know it through the successful attempts of school system leaders making personalized learning a reality in their schools and communities. We are grateful to Education Elements and Modern Teacher for supporting this initiative.”    

The three-day gathering will provide opportunities for participating superintendents to learn and grow together with an eye toward working as “critical friends” to develop action steps to take back to their respective districts. 

“The outstanding superintendents joining us in Charlotte are here to learn and think about not only this work, but more importantly, what it means for our kids,” said Mort Sherman, AASA associate executive director. “Attendees at this meeting will have ample opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations as they create ways to shape the conversation around personalized learning in this country — and not just react to it.”
