The 2020 Impact Florida Virtual Education Summit will provide participants with specific and actionable learning and collaboration opportunities that address the opportunity gaps, widening in this current moment, in Florida schools across racial, ethnic, and socio-economic lines. Spring boarding directly from last year’s Summit content, the 2020 Summit will focus on Impact Florida’s Five Conditions that Support Great Teachingand how Florida school districts and other entities have been strengthening and rethinking these conditions to attack the Opportunity Myth, in the wake of COVID-19 and our collective efforts to work toward equitable outcomes for all students.

At this Summit, participants will:

  • Deepen our collective understanding of the Five Conditions that Support Great Teaching, how they have supported the urgent work of the current moment, and how they have been reimagined in this context.
  • Hear and see examples from diverse perspectives of the Five Conditions supporting effective teaching practices and promoting student access to the learning opportunities they need to succeed.
  • Connect across districts and organizations to digest new information, share best practices, and problem-solve challenges within the Five Conditions.
  • Refine our vision and strategies to promote equity and college-to-career readiness for all students in this challenging context.

Attendance at the Impact Florida Virtual Summit is by invitation only. If you would like more information, or to discuss attending, please email your request to info@impactfl.org.
