NISD Partners with Eight DFW School Districts
With a mission to transform schools, nine Dallas/Fort Worth area school districts, including Northwest ISD, attended the first North Texas Visioning Conference in Allen ISD on July 22-23. The conference hosted North Texas educators from the North Texas Regional Consortium. These nine school districts have a vision to move the education system into a forward-thinking system that prepares students for their futures. The Consortium formed as a result of the Visioning Institute, a group of school district superintendents brought together by the Texas Association of School Administrators and the Texas Leadership Center.
The conference featured keynote speakers and educational leaders Diane Ravitch and Young Zhao and included breakout sessions featuring topics such as community-based accountability, digital learning, multiple measures of assessment, designing learning, capacity building and more.
