Large District Track

Large District Forum

We invite you to attend CoSN’s Large District Forum during the CoSN 2018 Annual Conference scheduled for Wednesday, March 14 from 10:00 am – 11:30 am.  We hope you will join us in Washington, DC for this special event designed for education technology leaders like you (CIO, CTO, CAO and others on your senior team) from large and mega-large school districts.

The 2018 Forum will focus on Change Management and Organizational Development in Large School Systems.

All large districts experience change, whether it be a new leadership structure, budget shifts, or enterprise system implementation. In this session, participants will understand the importance of investing in change management practices and organizational development structures to enable, not inhibit, positive change in large districts.  Hear how this focus is being implemented in large districts such as Boston, Houston and San Francisco, then engage in an interactive conversation about how to bring strategies and tools back to your district to support your change efforts.

This Forum is free when you register for CoSN 2018 Annual Conference, March 12-15, 2018 in Washington, DC.   Please Register  (1) for the conference AND (2) Register for this event when you get to step 4 of the registration process by selecting “Large District Forum”.

Breakout Sessions

In addition, throughout CoSN’s 2018 Annual Conference there will be a Large District Track with sessions specially designed for you and your team. Learn and share best practices with your colleagues, develop new strategies, and identify ways to overcome the specific challenges your school districts face. These sessions will be presented on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 13-14, and include
