Now Offered Virtually

Innovative School Summit Atlanta 2020

The Atlanta Summit Is Now Virtual

In light of the continuing National State of Emergency, the infection rates in Georgia and the pandemic’s impact on educators like yourself and travel in general, the Innovative Schools Summit Atlanta is now a virtual-only event. If you are already registered for this virtual event, which will take place October 23-25 (same dates) using Zoom you will be emailed access links prior to the start of the Summit.  If you plan to attend Pre-Conference sessions, they are scheduled for October 21-22.

We are very disappointed that we won’t see you in person in Atlanta.  The Atlanta Summit is always one of our staff’s favorite events and we were looking forward to welcoming you to the Westin this year. 

The theme for the October Virtual Summit is “Bridging the Pandemic Gap: Strategies to Engage Students Who Are At-Risk” and will feature featured sessions from: Gerry Brooks, “Stand Tall Steve” Bollar, Ernesto Mejia, Dr. Carolyn Strong and others, 15 Breakout sessions, your choice of 12 in-depth Pre-Conference Sessions (for an additional fee) and the ability to earn up to 27 continuing education credit hours.

We are planning to return to Atlanta in-person June 24-26, 2021 with Pre-Conference Sessions on June 22 & 23. Please find information on the 2021 Innovative Schools Summit Atlanta below.
