Spotlight: On The Road

It’s conference season.

Even late-starting schools are a couple of weeks into their academic years; the frenetic period of opening doors, registering students, assigning teachers, and ordering supplies has given way to daily instruction and operation – and also to presentation and reflection at fall conferences.

Spotlight will be out in force, crisscrossing the country as we attend summits, conferences, and confabs – all in the name of preaching our message about making data accessible, understandable, and actionable to “everyday users.”

Here’s our schedule; we hope to see you this fall!

September 26-28 we’ll be at NACAC in Salt Lake City, the largest annual gathering of college advising professionals, spreading the word about our College and Career Readiness Guide – and about our newest innovation, student recruitment videos for colleges and universities.

Then we’re right back on the road October 1-2, south to San Diego for RTM Innovation West, where we’ll be consulting with superintendents about putting the CCRG to work in their district – and then October 3-4 at EdSurge’s Fusion, serving on a panel sponsored by Ed-Fi on data interoperability.

Speaking of Ed-Fi, October 9-11 we’re in Austin for that organization’s annual Summit, presenting alongside our friends from YES Prep and Student1.

A week later, we’re in Boston for CCSSO’s meeting on Accountability, Systems and Reporting, showing off our Video Reporting Technology, in partnership with the California Department of Education.

And then in late October, before a bit of a break (phew!), we’re In Baltimore for the Council of the Great City Schools Conference, helping administrators from some of the nation’s largest districts consider how to make their data manageable and relevant.

Later in the fall we’ll be at CERA – and finally closing out the season by serving on a panel on next-generation assessment at Excelined.

Frankly it all seems a bit daunting! But well worth it; after all, ours is an important message, and we want to make certain it’s widely heard.
