School Improvement Network today announced they are extending the early bird pricing discounts for the upcoming 2012 Innovation Summit and Common Core Institute. The new cutoff date for the $100 registration discount is midnight on Monday, April 30, 2012. The Innovation Summit will be held July 16-17, and the Common Core Institute July 18-19 at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“We understand that in these challenging economic times, the approval process for funding professional development, even for leaders, can be lengthy,” said Chet Linton, President and CEO of School Improvement Network, host of the two events. “In an effort to be fair to everyone who has expressed an interest in attending, we have made the decision to extend the discount deadline a full two months.”
The 2012 Innovation Summit program will provide unparalleled educational opportunities for local, district, and state level leaders on innovative leadership and professional development, mapping to the Common Core Standards, equity practices that work for all students, and advanced training on School Improvement Network’s suite of on-demand PD solutions. Dynamic, expert keynote speakers and breakout presenters will provide best practices, advanced training, and proven tactics to empower your educators, all in an innovative and engaging new presentation format.
The Common Core Institute, led by the renowned Heidi Hayes Jacobs, will focus on personalized, hands-on workshops on unique Common Core training, and an introduction to LiveBook and LivePlanner. Key topics will include reviewing alignment perspectives, mapping to the Common Core, and upgrading to digital media assessments. Attendees are encouraged to start their free trial of Common Core 360 to prepare for the Institute.
Seating at each of the two events is limited to 500 participants, and registrations are honored on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay! Visit the Innovation Summit web pages to learn more, register, and reserve hotel accommodations. Also, anyone registering 3 or more people for either or both events will receive an additional $100 discount on the group’s total registration fee.
