“Why I love it is I happen to think school superintendents are among the most remarkable people on the planet and I am honored that I get to spend time with them and get to connect them to some of these amazing folks who lead and have started organizations in the K12 industry,” explained Robert’s.

Institute for Education Innovation works with superintendents all around the country, from aspiring superintendents or season veterans. They host three3 superintendent summits a year, where superintendents and chief academic officers work together to tackle education’s biggest issues. “The professional development that comes out of it is getting to share those stories across geographical regions and boundaries.”

Especially in regards to the fall of 2021, districts all over were dealing with political issues related to Covid-19. However, it turns out there were so many common threads that as a group they were able to find viable solutions to help districts throughout the U.S. survive and persist.
