Register for the Annual DTC Meeting (Tuesday, May 21) – Schedule Update and Exciting Professional Development Opportunity

In addition to our traditional post-administration review, we are excited to offer a new professional development opportunity at this year’s DTC meeting.

AdvancED|Measured Progress Regional Director, Dr. Lori Franke-Hopkins, will feature our continuous improvement protocol that is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Rather, it is a customized journey based on a set of factors where all institutions have the potential for transformation by focusing on changing processes, practices and actions to drive improvement. This personalized and customized experience is based on a school or district vision and long-term strategic goals/objectives that will produce the evidence, outcomes and successes institutions seek.

Updated schedule: The annual post-administration DTC meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 21. The meeting will be at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. The schedule for the meeting is as follows:

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM Post-administration review
12:00 PM – 12:30 PM Box lunches will be provided
12:30 PM – 1:30 PM Continuous Improvement Session

Registration is now open at the link below. Please note that registration is limited to the first 250 registrants. As we get closer to the date, we will send information about parking and reimbursement. There are no overnight hotel accommodations for this meeting.
