LEAD Conference

The annual LEAD Conference gives school and district leaders a chance to share and discuss effective practices happening every day in Tennessee schools. With valuable first-person examples, educators from across the state share their best ideas for preparing Tennessee's students for college and careers.

LEAD 2016

The LEAD Conference will take place Oct. 23-26 at the Music City Center in Nashville with the theme LEADing for Readiness. This year, the breakout sessions will align with the five areas of our strategic plan: early foundations, support educators, bridge to postsecondary, empower districts, and all means all.

Check back in May for more information on conference registration and the Call for Proposals for breakout sessions.
