Presenting at LEAD 2013

The Tennessee Department of Education is pleased to launch the call for proposals for the 2013 Tennessee Educational LEADership Conference. This year's conference will center on three areas of emphasis:

  • High Expectations for All Students (e.g., Common Core State Standards, gap closure, etc.)
  • Strategies for Intervention (e.g., RTI², etc.)
  • Quality Feedback from All Levels (e.g., principal/teacher evaluation, etc.) 

In addition, the 2013 LEAD Conference will emphasize the transition to the PARCC Assessment.

We are seeking engaging, knowledgeable presenters to lead sessions with Tennessee school leaders focused on accelerating student growth. The LEAD Conference is primarily an opportunity for schools and districts to share the practices that drive their results with one another; however, partner organizations, higher education representatives, and others are welcomed to apply to present. Along with the topics above, each presentation should reflect the spirit of the Core Values of the Tennessee Department of Education.

If you are interested in applying to present at the LEAD Conference, please complete the online proposal by August 5, 2013. If you have any questions, please email

Submit your proposal for LEAD 2013
