Update to 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 P Post-administration review
